DETERMINING REVENUES AND PRICING
We do not determine how much we can earn for delivering electricity. This amount is set externally by an independent body called the Australian Energy Regulator (AER)
How is our electricity revenue determined?
Approximately every five years, AusNet Services submits a revenue proposal to the AER for our two electricity networks. Here’s some more information and a map of our networks.
Each proposal outlines the planned work programs and revenue we require to improve, maintain and operate safe, reliable and efficient networks that meet the long term needs of our customers and the wider community.
To ensure our programs and revenue proposals reflect future needs we take many opportunities to talk and listen to our customers and other groups reliant on our business.
In effect, the AER decides how much we can charge our customers, and this decision is reflected in electricity bills that customers receive from their energy retailer.
