The Energy Legislation Amendment (Flexible Pricing and other Matters) Act 2013 (Vic) was assented to on 13 March 2013. The Act amends the Electricity Industry Act 2000 (Vic) and implements consumer protections required to introduce flexible electricity tariff pricing. The Act removes restrictions on cross ownership in the electricity sector and prescribes that the Governor in Council may make provision for matters such as choice of tariff structure and access to electricity usage data. The Act also amends the National Electricity (Victoria) Act 2005 (Vic), Gas Industry Act 2001 (Vic) and the National Gas (Victoria) Act 2008 (Vic), and clarifies the scope of the enforcement responsibilities of the Essential Services Commission of Victoria with respect to electricity regulation.
