What is a network tariff?
Network tariffs are charged to energy retailers from the network operator to recoup the cost of supplying, maintaining and improving infrastructure, such as electrical poles and wires. Your retailer passes these costs on as part of your electricity contract and the network infrastructure charges typically account for more than 50% of the total electricity bill. These charges are fixed and non-contestable, meaning they cannot be negotiated like your energy rates.
