Revenue

There is considerable uncertainty in financial markets that have resulted in a marked increase in the rate of return since we met with our customers.

Metering services

For the 2024-29 regulatory period, we are proposing to continue installing smart meters for all new and replacement installations, including the ongoing replacement of our mechanical meters that have exceeded their operational life.

Tariffs for a new age

We set network tariffs each year to collect the revenue allowance set by the AER.
