Regulation

To ensure we manage the electricity distribution network efficiently for our customers, we're regulated under the National Electricity Rules (NER) by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER). The AER determines the revenue we're allowed and what we can charge customers to use our distribution network.

These are set in five-year periods, with our next regulatory period starting on 1 July 2020.

2020-25 Regulatory Determination

In June 2020 the AER made its final decision regarding our allowed revenue for the period July 2020 to June 2025.

Their final decision on our allowed operating and capital expenditure for the 2020-25 period will shape Queensland’s energy future, and determine how we charge for the use of our electricity network.

Expenditure Forecasting Methodology

In accordance with clause 6.8.1A of the National Electricity Rules, we submitted an Expenditure Forecasting Methodology (PDF 569.9 kb) to the AER on 25 November 2013. This document sets out the methodology we used in preparing forecasts of operating expenditure (opex) and capital expenditure (capex) as part of our 2015-20 Regulatory Proposal.
