New connections and alterations

TasNetworks has reviewed how we are applying the costs incurred by developers and those customers requesting connection services which include quoted services. Typical examples of this type of work are: relocations of TasNetworks' distribution infrastructure; provision of public lighting; requests for a higher standard of service; and design and audit services.

The Australian Energy Regulator approves a ‘Cost Allocation Methodology’ and TasNetworks then applies that methodology across customer connection works. This ensures the general Tasmanian electricity customer base is not subsidising individual customer connection service requests.

Further information on our cost allocation method, tariffs and fees is available here.
