AER approves 2020 transmission tariffs for Victorian gas customers

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has approved the 2020 Victorian gas transmission tariffs of APA Group’s Victorian Transmission Services. These tariffs comply with the requirements of the AER-approved gas access arrangement for the period 2018-22.

Transmission costs typically make up less than 3 per cent of the retail bill. Increases in transmission network tariffs are expected to have a minimal impact on customer’s bills, increasing them by less than 0.2 per cent.

These increases are the minimum required for APA Group to continue to provide a safe and reliable service and to meet regulatory obligations.

The AER acknowledges that consumers should pay no more than necessary for safe and reliable energy. We encourage consumers to use the Victorian Government’s Energy Compare website, a free and independent price comparison tool, to find the best deal to suit their energy needs.
