Regulated electricity prices for regional Queensland 2020–21

Status
In progress

On 25 June 2020, we published the regulated electricity prices (notified prices) for regional Queensland to apply from 1 July 2020. We are also setting 11 additional tariffs. Details about both these reviews are below—first for the additional tariffs, and then for the prices we have already published.


Supplementary pricing review

On 24 June 2020, we received a delegation from the Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy to set three new electricity (controlled load) retail tariffs for 2020–21. The new tariffs are to apply from 1 November 2020 and supplement the existing suite of notified prices for customers in regional Queensland in 2020–21.

On 29 June 2020, we informed stakeholders of this review and published a stakeholder notice with further information, including an initial consultation timetable with key project milestones.

On 3 August 2020, we received a delegation from the Minister to set eight additional retail tariffs for 2020–21. The new tariffs are to apply from 1 January 2021 and supplement the existing suite of notified prices for customers in regional Queensland in 2020–21.

Combined supplementary notified prices review

Given the timeframes, likely similar interested stakeholders and the related subject matter, we have decided to combine the existing review (of the new load control tariffs) with the review to set eight additional retail tariffs.

Draft determination

On 25 August 2020, we published our draft determination on the supplementary notified prices for 2020–21 (three new load control tariffs and the suite of eight additional retail tariffs).

Submissions on the draft determination were due by 17 September 2020.

More information on the supplementary price review, including the draft determination report and related material, can be found below.

Notified prices review 2020–21

On 10 December 2019, we received a delegation from the Minister to set notified prices to apply in regional Queensland in 2020-21.

In June 2020, we published our final determination. Overall, notified prices in 2020–21 are:

  • decreasing by 5.9% for a typical customer on the main residential tariff (tariff 11)
  • decreasing by 3.2% for a typical customer on the main small business tariff (tariff 20).

The final determination and related reports and papers, including stakeholder submissions, can be downloaded below. An information booklet is also available under ‘Reports and papers’.
