In 2005, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) determined the revenue allowed to the electricity network distribution businesses in NSW and ACT for the next 5 year regulatory period.
The AER determinations could have resulted in reductions in revenue of 28 – 33%. Given that distribution business charges make up about 40 – 50% of the cost of retail electricity bills, this reduction would have resulted in a reduction of approximately $100 - $300 in average yearly household electricity bills.
