Connection services

To achieve more cost-reflectivity and transparency, the costs of Connection Services provided to customers changed from 1 July 2015 to Alternative Control Services (ACS)

ACS are 'price capped' services directly charged to customers and in some cases, they may be contestable (open to competition). In previous years the costs for Connection Services were recovered from customers through our network tariffs.

As a result of Power of Choice taking effect on 1 December 2017, we anticipate that amendments to certain ACS services will have to be made to reflect metering services contestability.

The latest ACS fees (price capped services) for Connection Services are available in our Updated Network Tariff Tables (Excel) on our Pricing publications webpage.

Metering charges

With the Power of Choice rule change taking effect on 1 December 2017, we are no longer responsible for installing electricity meters as they are subject to contestability (open to competition).

We are only able to provide metering services to existing regulated meters as long as they are in operation. The costs for these services are recovered from our customers through Metering Services Charges.

New network tariffs

From 1 July 2018, we will offer two new cost reflective tariffs:

  • an optional cost-reflective time-of-use demand based tariff for large LV customers with electricity consumption greater than 100 MWh per year (NTC7200 - LV Demand)
  • an innovative tariff that is different from traditional demand-based tariffs (NTC6400 - Residential Lifestyle). This tariff is offered to a limited number of retail customers.
