Adjudicator’s orders will generally fall within one of two categories:

  • Orders requiring the payment of money or
  • Other orders (such as an order requiring a person to remove a sign from their balcony).

Article contributed by Adam Ford, Partner – ARC Utilities Management

If your Body Corporate purchases electricity in bulk and on-sells to the resident or is considering doing so, then this information applies to you.

The new requirements for authorisation and registration are the most significant changes for bodies corporate in their roles as embedded network operators (ENOs) and exempt sellers which allows them to on-sell to residents. Under the updated framework, two new roles will be created that effectively replace ENOs and exempt sellers. These are - Embedded Network Service Providers (ENSPs) and off-market retailers.
