    This contract doesn't need to be signed by you. This contract applies when you take supply of electricity from our network (unless you already have a negotiated supply contract with us or subsequently negotiate a contract with us).

  • Distribution Connection Pricing Policy

    Our Distribution Connection Pricing Policy (PDF) explains the way we charge for connecting to our distribution network.

    Read more

    We'll calculate charges for connecting or modifying a connection to our distribution network in a way that reflects the costs and benefits of that connection, while remaining compliant. Taking into account this range of factors, our policy approach is summarised as:

    • Customers requiring basic and standard customer projects are exempt from any requirement to contribute towards augmentation services
    • We're transitioning to more cost-reflective charging for standard customer projects that require transformers
    • We'll apply standard calculations and fixed rates where possible
    • We'll offer flexible pricing terms and introduce appropriate safeguards to ensure the connection charges are paid
    • Developers are eligible to refunds as part of the Developer Mains Scheme
  • Service and Installation Rules (SIR)
    The SIR V8.1 (effective from 1 July 2022) defines the requirements for connecting to the TasNetworks distribution network. SIR V7 is effective up to 30 June 2022.

    This guide is for electrical contractors, designers, consultants, switchboard manufacturers and customers to assist them in the process of establishing a connection to the distribution network.

    Since 1 December 2017, metering standards are issued by the Department of Justice and are accessible via the Consumer, Building and Occupational Services website.
