Variations in tariffs and other charges

Our standing Tariffs are varied from time to time in accordance with the procedures in the National Energy Retail Law and are published on our website. If we change our standing Tariffs, we will give you notice of any variations as soon as practicable and in any event no later than your next bill or in accordance with any applicable laws and codes.

We may impose an additional charge if there is, or we fairly and reasonably expect there will be, an increase in any of our environmental, standing, metering, network and regulatory costs, if that cost increase is specifically or otherwise attributable to you or to the energy we sell you. The amount of the additional charge will be no more than what is required to recover such an increase in costs. There will be no additional charge to the extent that we recover a cost increase through variations in our tariffs.

Daily supply charge: a charge that applies for supplying electricity and gas to your premises for each day of the billing period, regardless of how much electricity and gas you use.
kWh: 'kWh' stands for kilowatt hour and is the unit of measurement for your electricity account.
MJ: 'MJ' stands for megajoule and is the unit of measurement for your gas bill.

Daily usage is the total electricity usage for the period to which an account relates, divided by the number of days in that period.
*Alinta Energy Residential Electricity Rates apply to all usage unless Off Peak Controlled Load Rates apply.
^Off Peak Controlled Load Rates apply for electricity used in permanently installed storage water heaters with a rated delivery of not less than 125 litres, storage space heaters and other approved thermal storage applications during hours which are fixed from time to time with control by a time switch or other means.
