From 18 September 2017, changes to the National Electricity Rules widen the scope of the RIT-T to include replacement projects.
The purpose of the RIT-T, as set out at clause 5.16 of the National Electricity Rules, is to identify the credible option that maximises the present value of net economic benefit to all those who produce, consume and transport electricity in the market.
