ENA supports AER’s view on opportunities for fairer pricing

The Energy Networks Association (ENA) strongly supports the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) view that cost reflective pricing reforms can make electricity tariffs fairer for customers.

Responding to AER consultation on distribution network Tariff Structure Statements (TSS) in Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Australian Capital Territory, the ENA endorsed the regulator’s view that “moving towards tariffs that take account of a customer’s use of electricity during peak times will make pricing for electricity fairer”.

ENA CEO, John Bradley, said implementing new network tariff structures was also important to improve Australia’s long-term energy productivity during a period of critical change.
