Pre-proposal public consultation

Prior to finalising our proposal we reached out to industry, special interest groups, and members of the public to seek consultation on our RCP3 proposal. Our consultation document Securing Our Energy Future 2020 -2025 was provided at that time. We encouraged stakeholders to help us shape our RCP3 proposal and received submissions which may be viewed here.
