Distribution Annual Planning Report

Find out how we are planning the electricity network of the future in our Distribution Annual Planning Report (DAPR) (PDF 4.7 mb).

What this report covers

The DAPR covers a five year period from 2018-19 to 2022-23 and outlines our strategies and plans for regional Queensland.

In particular the DAPR and supporting information below include:

  • Planning for subtransmission and distribution network growth
  • Asset repair and replacement planning
  • Planning for future demand on the network
  • Capacity and load forecasts by region
  • Current and future limitations on our subtransmission and distribution networks
  • Possible solutions for network limitations.

Please click on the image to open the DAPR report.

How information is presented

The full report can be downloaded as a PDF document (links above). Our load forecasts, capacity data and detailed information on existing network limitations and proposed solutions are available to download as MS Excel (xlsx.) files. Other file formats available on request, just email us your requirements.

Disclaimer

Our DAPR is prepared and made available solely for information purposes and should not be taken as a recommendation in respect of any possible investment. This report was up-to-date when it was published, but details will change over time due to legislative, policy and other developments.

If you have any questions, comments or feedback about how we could improve our DAPR, please let us know by email.

Demand Management Incentive Map

In some areas of network constraint, financial incentives are available to eligible customers to reduce electricity usage at peak demand times. Demand management incentive programs help to reduce peak demand, deferring costly network infrastructure upgrades to help minimise electricity price increases for everyone.

You can see where we have cashback incentives available now and within the next two years by searching by our Demand Management Incentive Map.
