Electricity Tariff Reform in Australia

Customers are transforming the electricity system by embracing new technologies and rethinking how they source and use electricity. Network tariff reform has a vital role to play in the transformation and in delivering benefits to customers.

Australia’s electricity networks recognise their important responsibility to work with stakeholders to help customers unlock the full benefits of these new technologies, while delivering safety, reliability and efficiency.

Many have developed new proposals for better tariffs in consultation with their customers and the new Tariff Structure Statements are being assessed by the Australian Energy Regulator.
