Distribution prices for embedded generators
The network charges for embedded generation connections are calculated on an individual basis. We also pay embedded generators the equivalent of the locational transmission network charges that would have been payable to the transmission network service provider had the embedded generator not been transferring energy into the distribution network.

- Prescribed transmission services: The services provided by us as monopoly services to many customers under the revenue cap and subject to significant regulation. They include shared network services to load customers and connection services.
- Negotiated transmission services: Monopoly services provided by us to one or a small number of customers. As such, they are subject to lighter-handed regulation. They include connection services in our substations related to a new wind farm or a new load customer.
- Non-regulated transmission services: Provided by us on a contestable basis and aren’t subject to regulation as there’s already effective competition. They include operations and maintenance services provided on privately owned transmission lines, as well as connection services between our substations and our customers’ remote sites.
Our negotiating framework sets out the procedures in setting up an agreement with a company or individual wishing to receive a negotiated transmission or distribution service.
The framework details the terms and conditions to be met in order for a company to access certain transmission and distribution services. In the case of transmission, it usually applies to a new wind farm or a new load customer. For distribution, it would usually apply to public lighting and implementation of new technologies. The provision of negotiated services is subject to lighter regulation than the rules that govern the other regulated services we provide.
