The Moorabool Central Highlands Power Alliance has alleged that the Australian Energy Market Operator breached three national electricity rules. The Alliance claims the breaches took place during AEMO’s regulatory test for the $370 million Western Victorian Transmission Network Project, which is aimed at easing renewable energy bottlenecks and includes a new terminal station north of Ballarat. The Alliance represents 110 community groups whose members reside near the proposed powerline expansion, and it has raised its concerns with the Australian Energy Regulator.
