Distribution Annual Planning Report

Find out how we are planning the electricity network of the future in our Distribution Annual Planning Report (DAPR) (PDF 3.8 mb).

The DAPR covers a five year period from 2016-17 to 2020-21 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.

If you have comments or feedback on the DAPR please email us.

Annual fault studies

The Annual Fault Study Summaries - Subtransient (XLSX 1.8 mb) and Annual Fault Study Summaries - Synchronous (XLSX 1.8 mb) provide the subtransient and synchronous fault levels and the corresponding sequence components for our substations.

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.
