Sunbury – Diggers Rest Electricity Supply

This Regulatory Investment Test for Distribution (RIT-D) arises because there is insufficient thermal capacity at Sunbury Zone Substation to supply the forecast load. In addition, the reliability, age and condition of the Sunbury Zone Substation assets is exposing customers to an increased loss of supply risk.
