Business charging elements

Network tariffs are designed to best reflect the costs of delivering a safe and reliable supply of electricity to our network customers.

Network tariffs are made up of charging elements which when combined produce a fee to the customer for the use of the electricity network and the electricity they use. For tariff specific charges please refer to the Energex 2017-18 Network Tariff Guide and the 2017-18 Network Prices (Excel).
