The Inquiry – which delivers on a key 100-day election commitment – has been established to investigate the complex methodology used to determine SA Water’s bills to help ensure families and businesses are paying a fair price for their water.
“We are pleased to appoint Mr Owens to this new and important role which will provide valuable independent advice to Government on the complex methodology used to determine what South Australians pay every time they turn on the tap,’’ said Treasurer Rob Lucas.
“The Marshall Government will do what we can to ease cost-of-living pressures for all South Australians, that’s why we’re slashing ESL bills and announced payroll tax cuts for all small businesses, and this is yet another example of that commitment.”
He is also a former Chair of the board of SA Water.
Within its framework, it will look into SA Water’s starting regulated asset base value, the methodology used to determine SA Water’s weighted average cost of capital among other factors affecting price to consumers.
