Lower Costs and Customer Choice Drives New Network Proposals

Victorian electricity customers will experience reduced network charges as early as 2016 under new regulatory proposals lodged by the Victorian distribution businesses.

The proposals, lodged by the five distribution businesses servicing Victorian electricity customers will provide decreases in network charges of up to $138 in some areas.

Energy Networks Association CEO, John Bradley, said that the proposals have been developed after extensive consumer consultation, engaging in new ways to receive important feedback on the priorities of electricity customers.

“Electricity affordability is a key issue for electricity customers, but the evidence is that they are not prepared to compromise the safe and reliable delivery of electricity.
