Asset management plan

OJV is responsible for the management of the electricity lines and equipment, known as assets, on behalf of the Governing Committee.

The OJV Asset Management Plan (AMP) details how OJV intends to build, maintain and reinforce the distribution network over the next 10 years while meeting agreed service, safety, quality and profitability targets.
Customers of OJV are consulted about the service levels they prefer and the price that they are willing to pay. This is known as the price / quality trade off i.e. cost of power supply versus number of power cuts. Customers’ views about service levels are combined with OJV and the Government’s required service levels to form the foundation of the AMP.

The OJV Governing Committee and OJV have to find the right balance between cost to the customer, safety, environmental requirements, service levels and network investment.
The Electricity Distribution Information Disclosure Determination 2012 requires the Plan to be publicly available.
The Plan looks ahead for the next 10 years and is updated annually.

We invite submissions from all stakeholders, prior to the next review. This process starts in August each year and the new plan is published by 31st March the following year.

Submissions should be addressed to:
