Retailer Reliability Obligation (RRO)

1 July 2019

The RRO came into effect on 1 July 2019. It will ensure energy retailers (and some large energy users) are accountable for reliability in the National Electricity Market by requiring companies to sign contracts guaranteeing enough energy is available to meet demand. It was designed by the independent Energy Security Board with extensive input from a range of industry stakeholders. See the Retailer Reliability Obligation page for more information.
