Changes to fees, tariffs and charges

The State Government announced changes to electricity prices in the 2018-19 May State Budget which will see our average residential customer’s electricity bill increasing by $193 per year, or an extra $3.70 per week [1] from 1 July 2018. 

Tariffs for businesses, not-for-profit and government customers will also change to better reflect the cost to produce and supply electricity.

The costs involved in supplying regional and remote customers with electricity is higher than what is charged. This cost difference is subsidised by the State Government through the uniform tariff policy. You can find further details on our electricity tariffs, fees and charges on our website.

We’re here to help.
