Distribution Loss Factor Methodology

The National Electricity Rules prescribe that distribution loss factors must be determined by a Distribution Network Service Provider for all connection points on its distribution network either individually or collectively.

Distribution loss factors notionally describe the average energy losses for electricity transmitted on a distribution network, between a distribution network connection point and a transmission network connection point or virtual transmission node, for the applicable financial year.

Our Distribution Loss Factor Methodology outlines the method we apply to the calculation of customer Distribution Loss Factors and is published in accordance with Clauses 3.6.3 and 3.15.4 of the National Electricity Rules.
