Electricity & Gas Networks

Energy networks are responsible for the infrastructure that supplies the end user. Each network is responsible for a given district within a state. End user energy pricing does vary between networks in the same state. Network charges have risen substantially in since 2009 when governments ordered the networks to upgrade their ageing infrastructure. Unlike retailers, networks are a non-contestable component of energy costs.

 

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) is responsible for overseeing the reliable and cost-effective operation of network and pipeline service providers, ensuring end-users can access energy when necessary.
