Determining electricity charges
Electricity bills include many charges, including retail, wholesale, network and green (e.g. solar feed-in tariff) costs.
We collect revenue through network costs charged on customer bills. The amount we can charge for supply is determined by an independent body, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER).
Generally, we submit a revenue proposal to the Australian Energy Regulator for network charges, once every 5 years.
The proposals include funding for our planned work programs, network maintenance and improvements so we can operate safe, reliable and efficient networks that meet the long-term needs of our customers and community.
We listen to customers and other groups reliant on our energy networks during this process. This means our programs and revenue proposals are reflect customers’ needs and preferences.
The AER then reviews our proposals and determines how much we can charge. This decision is reflected in the bill you receive from your energy retailer. Read more about your energy bill on the AER’s website.
