Price changes on 1 July

Each year Ausgrid is required to submit an annual network pricing proposal to the Australian Energy Regulator (AER).

The 2017/18 pricing proposal was approved by the AER in May 2017 and includes a reduction in network charges for most of Ausgrid's residential customers. Energy-use charges will decrease and, for most customers, this offsets a modest increase in fixed charges. 

The pricing proposal reflects the efficient cost of providing a safe and reliable electricity supply to our customers and takes account of the impact of tariffs on our customers. The prices will be applied from 1 July 2017.

Most customers do not see the network price assigned to their tariff. Retailers can decide how to incorporate these network charges into customers’ final bills.

Tariffs for 2017/18 have been based on a target revenue set by an agreed Undertaking with the AER. The undertaking has been agreed because the AER's final determination was set aside by the Australian Competition Tribunal in February 2016.
