Distribution network tariffs proposed by Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy and Essential Energy have been approved by the AER.
These distribution network tariffs implement the first year of the AER’s distribution determination for each NSW distributor, which reduced the amount of revenue they could each recover from customers over 2019–24.
If retailers pass on the changes in distribution network tariffs in full, and other components of the bill are unchanged, bills for residential consumers and small business customers in 2019–20 would change as detailed below:
|NSW Distributor||Residential Customer||Small Business Customer|
The AER expects other components of the retail bill in NSW to decrease in 2019-20.
The approved distribution network tariffs will take effect from 1 July 2019.
