Under the URA Act, the Authority may issue reliability standards in relation to the reliability of a regulated service throughout Vanuatu. In determining whether to issue any reliability standard, the Authority must have regard to the cost and convenience of compliance with the reliability standard and the nature and importance of the reliability issue that is addressed. The Electricity Reliability Standards are issued by the Authority as guidelines for electricity utilities to ensure that reliable electricity is generated and distributed to customers. The Authority influences utilities reliability of supply through a financial incentive scheme, which encourages the utilities to meet and exceed the target levels of reliability. Each Standard has specific performance requirements that must be met to manage reliability and quality issues effectively. A guideline is provided with each standard to assist regulated utilities in understanding and complying with the requirements.
