Recently, some QLD customers have received information regarding changes to their solar or controlled load metering charges with their annual rate review.
The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has determined that metering charges should be separated from network charges to enable the competitive provision of metering services and provide greater transparency to customers for charging meter costs. Therefore, you’ll see a change on your bill where a solar or controlled load metering charge will be itemised along with your usage charges.
It’s important to note that this is not a new charge just a change to the way metering is charged and is passed through to you.
Visit the AGL website for more information on how energy is priced. If you would like to discuss these changes further, we encourage you to contact us.
