Connection services

As part of a drive for more cost-reflectivity and transparency, the costs of Connection Services provided to customers changed from 1 July 2015.

The AER determines the classification of services provided by Distribution Network Service providers, such as Energex. The cost of these services can be either directly charged to the customer or recovered through revenue obtained from all customer network tariffs.

Services that can be directly charged to the customer are classified by the AER as Alternative Control Services (ACS) and in some cases these services may also be contestable. In previous years the fees associated with Connection Services have been subsidised by the general customer base through Energex's network tariffs.

Effective 1 July 2016, new fees apply to ACS Connection Services. The Tariff Schedule 2016/17 outlines the fees and charges applicable to customers and developers for Connection Services.

Metering charges

To align with new National Electricity Rules set by the AER, Energex is working with electricity retailers to implement changes to how customers pay for individual metering connections and personalised metering enhancements or alterations.

In essence the changes mean that rather than the previous process where all tariff/metering and connection costs were shared by all South East Queensland customers; individual tariff/metering costs will now be paid by the individual customer.

There are two main areas which will impact domestic customers:

  1. Metering Service Charge (MSC) from 1 July 2015
  2. Upfront Meter Installation Service Charge from 1 August 2015

New network tariffs

From 1 July 2016, Energex will be offering two new tariffs which encourage customers to consume electricity during periods of low demand and reduce their consumption during the peak period between 4pm and 8pm. These tariffs are known as Residential Demand Network Tariff (NTC7000) and Smart Control Tariff (NTC7300).
