This is the third blog in a series on Basslink and includes further detail on the Basslink agreements, how Basslink fees payable by Hydro are calculated, and other comments on Basslink’s performance during the first six years by the Electricity Supply Industry Expert Panel in its March 2012 report (available from the dpac site).
The Report is 800 pages long and covers the entire Tasmanian electricity industry. The following is a cut and paste from Part A of Volume 2 covering Basslink.
The operation of Basslink is governed by two main contracts, the Basslink Operations Agreement (BOA) and the Basslink Service Agreement (BSA). The two agreements are, however, independent of each other and the performance obligations in both are different.
