This revenue allowance is used to determine the network tariffs for our Standard Control Services each year, which are approved by the AER in our annual Pricing Proposal (see below).
The AER also approves prices for our Alternative Control Services which are charged separately and do not form part of the network tariffs.

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 2020-21 Network Tariff Tables on the AER's website. We've updated our charges to reflect the final Schedule 8 maximum price caps in the 2020-21 Network Tariff Tables above.
2019-20 Pricing information guides
With our 2019-20 Pricing Proposal we 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.
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.
