On 12 December 2014, the AER made its determination on the 2015 AMI charges in accordance with the applicable Order in Council. The charges allow AusNet Services to recover only those portions of its actual 2013 costs that the AER has determined to be prudent and efficient. The charges will take effect from 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2015. AusNet Services will not charge its customers a separate manual meter fee in 2015.
