Pricing publications

The revenue that we are allowed to collect through 2020-25 for our distribution network services was approved by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) in its Distribution Determination in June 2020.

This revenue allowance is used to determine the network tariffs for our Standard Control Services (SCS) 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 (ACS) which are charged separately and do not form part of the network tariffs.

2021-22 Pricing proposal

Clause 6.18.2(a) of the National Electricity Rules requires us to submit an annual Pricing Proposal to the AER.

Our 2021-22 Pricing Proposal (below) was approved by the AER on 7 May 2021. It sets out the tariff classes, tariffs and charging parameters in line with our approved 2020-25 TSS.

The 2021-22 Network Price List (below) contains the rates for SCS and ACS which will be applied in 2021-22.

The documents provided to the AER as part of the 2021-22 Pricing Proposal process are available in the table below as well as on the AER’s website.

Maximum price cap for Alternative Control Services (ACS)

A number of 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 applicable prices for certain fee-based services charged to customers will actually be lower than the prices approved by the AER.

The prices included in the 2021-22 Network Price List published above have been updated to reflect the approved Schedule 8 maximum price caps.

2021-22 Network tariff guide

Our Network Tariff Guide (PDF 1.7 mb) provides further information to assist stakeholders in the application and interpretation of our network tariffs applicable to each tariff class for the 2020-25 regulatory control period.

Product codes for ACS quoted services

The Quoted services product codes table (XLSX 17.0 kb) lists the relevant product codes for our price on application ‘quoted services’.

Metering installations

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.

Previous pricing proposals can be found on our Historic pricing publications webpage.

Tariff structure statement

Our 2020-25 Tariff Structure Statement (TSS) was approved by the AER in June 2020. Our annual Pricing Proposal for 2020-25 will be consistent with the details outlined in our TSS. The specific rates for each tariff will be published in the relevant annual Pricing Proposal.
