Network prices

Energex is the distributor that manages the electricity network in South East Queensland including the poles, wires, cables and other equipment that deliver electricity to your home or business.

Energex charges electricity retailers a fee for the use of the electricity network that is passed on to customers.

The amount charged to customers for the use of the network is regulated by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER).

Consistent with changes to the national electricity market rules, Energex has established a cost-reflective pricing model for individual service connections and personalised network enhancements/alterations. The key aim of the change is that the costs of these services are passed on to those customers who will be using them, rather than the broader community. The change aligns with future competition in the industry outlined in the national Power of Choice review and is designed to give consumers more visibility of the costs of various electricity network costs and provide them with options in the way they use electricity.

Energex sought additional time to properly consult with customers on these changes which were announced by the AER on 30 April 2015 to come into effect 1 July 2015. This request was not approved by the AER.

Energex is committed to continuing to drive down network electricity prices for South East Queensland.
