With this letter, we approve Western Power Distribution’s (WPD’s) data privacy plan for accessing household electricity smart metering data. The plan is approved based on our assessment that WPD’s data privacy plan meets the requirements of Licence Condition 10.A.4. The plan approval will allow WPD to collect and process domestic smart meter consumption data which relates to a period of less than one month in the format and under the conditions set out in the data privacy plan. A redacted version of WPD’s data privacy plan is published alongside the present letter.
