Cost allocation method

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) is responsible for the economic regulation of the electricity distribution networks in the National Electricity Market.

The AER regulates the electricity industry in line with the National Electricity Law and National Electricity Rules (NER).

The AER's approved Cost Allocation Methodology outlines the principles we will use to allocate costs to services and is published in compliance with the requirements of Clause 6.15.4(h) of the NER.
