This summer was different from the last.

Across summer ’20, we saw:

  • Five separate days that RERT was called
  • RERT was required in New South Wales for the first time in its history
  • A lower volume of RERT was activated


This indicates that the reserve gas supply was smaller than in previous summers, even though its cost is high.  This suggests RERT providers are getting smarter about how they manage contracts.
