What is the service fee?

The service fee is set by the Queensland Competition Authority and covers the costs of supplying and maintaining the electricity network. This includes transmission and powerlines that need to be built, maintained and operated as well as costs for billing and administration. From 1 July 2023, the daily service fee for small customers now also incorporates standard metering charges. The daily service fee for each type of tariff can be viewed on our Tariffs and prices web pages.
