2019-20 Pricing proposal
Our 2019-20 Annual Pricing Proposal (below) was approved by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) on 15 May 2019.
The proposed 2019-20 Annual Pricing Proposal sets out the tariff classes, tariffs and charging parameters in line with our approved 2017-20 Tariff Structure Statement.
Clause 6.18.2(a) of the National Electricity Rules requires us to submit an annual pricing proposal to the AER.

Note: The 2019-20 Standard Control Services (SCS) Price comparison above provides reasons for variations between the prices included in the 2019-20 Pricing Proposal and the indicative 2019-20 prices included in our 2018-19 Pricing Proposal.
Maximum price cap for Alternative Control Services
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 2006. These maximum prices take precedence over the prices approved by the AER.
This means the prices for certain services charged to customers will actually be lower than the prices contained in the 2019-20 Network Tariff Tables on the AER's website. We've updated our charges to reflect the final Schedule 8 maximum price caps in the 2019-20 Network Tariff Tables updated for Schedule 8 above.
2019-20 Other pricing documents
In addition to the 2019-20 Pricing Proposal, we've also developed the following documents:
- 2019-20 Network Tariff Guide (PDF 896.3 kb) - outlines our tariff classes and tariffs for Direct Control Services (comprising SCS and ACS) from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020. It also provides Product codes, Ellipse codes and Peace codes for distribution services.
- 2019-20 Standard Control Services (SCS) Pricing Information Guide (PDF 1.5 mb) - assists stakeholders to better understand how our network charges are calculated.
Previous pricing proposals can be found on our Historic pricing publications webpage.
Change to jurisdictional scheme funding
On 1 June 2017, the Queensland Government directed us to remove the jurisdictional scheme amounts (Solar Bonus Scheme and other amounts) from our network charges until at least 2020. These costs are now funded by the Queensland Government via a fixed grant covering the three year period 1 July 2017 - 30 June 2020. As a result, the jurisdictional scheme rates in our 2019-20 network charges have been set to nil.
As a result of Power of Choice taking effect in Queensland on 1 December 2017, we're no longer responsible for installing electricity meters as they're subject to contestability (competition). As a result, a number of ACS were reviewed on 1 December 2017 to remove the metering costs out of these services.
