On 10 December 2019, we received a delegation from the Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy to set regulated retail electricity prices (notified prices) to apply in regional Queensland in 2020-21.
On 25 June 2020 we released 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’.
On 31 March 2020, we released our draft determination on regulated retail electricity prices for regional Queensland in 2020–21. Our 2020–21 draft prices would result in a 5.3% decrease for a typical customer on the main residential tariff (tariff 11), and a 5.0% decrease for the typical customer on the main small business tariff (tariff 20).
Given the coronavirus pandemic, we held four virtual (rather than in-person) workshops on the draft determination in early May, using phone conferencing. A copy of the workshop presentation can be downloaded below.
Submissions on the draft determination were due by 13 May 2020. We received 12 public submissions in response to our draft determination. These can be found below.
We published an interim consultation paper (ICP), inviting stakeholders to comment on key issues relevant to setting notified prices this year.
In response, we received stakeholder submissions by the due date of 13 January 2020. These can be downloaded below.
