2017-2018 Pricing Proposal

Clause 6.18.2(a) of the National Electricity Rules requires us to submit an annual pricing proposal to the Australian Energy Regulatory (AER).

Our 2017-18 Annual Pricing Proposal was submitted to the AER on 31 March 2017 and was approved by the regulator on 16 May 2017. The 2017-18 Annual Pricing Proposal sets out the tariff classes, tariffs and charging parameters in line with our approved 2017-20 Tariff Structure Statement.

On 1 June 2017, the Queensland Government directed us to reduce our 2017-18 charges following the release of the regulated retail electricity prices set by the Queensland Competition Authority (QCA).  As a result, the costs associated with the jurisdictional schemes included in the charges for Standard Control Services (SCS) will not be passed through to customers in 2017-18 until at least 2020.

A number of Alternative Control Services (ACS) are subject to the maximum price cap set by the Queensland Government through Schedule 8 of the Queensland Electricity Regulation 2016. These maximum prices take precedence over the prices approved by the AER. Our 2017-18 prices have been updated accordingly.

Finally, as a result of Power of Choice taking effect in Queensland on 1 December 2017, we will no longer be responsible for providing metering installations as they will be subject to contestability. A number of ACS will need to be reviewed on 1 December 2017 to strip the metering provision out of these services.  Having received the necessary approval from the AER on 17 November 2017, we have issued an updated network price list.

The Pricing Proposal and the network price list (updated as of 1 December 2017) are available below.
