Overview

On 27 May 2020, AusNet Services submitted an application to the AER for a positive pass through of $14.71 million for costs associated with the 2019-20 bushfires. AusNet Services proposes that all of this pass through amount should be recovered by electricity users through an increase in AusNet Services' distribution prices in the first half of 2021.
