PDF: 371 KB

The Jervis Bay Territory Administration (Administration) facilitates the provision of electricity supply in the Jervis Bay Territory (JBT). It is proposed to update the electricity fees in the JBT, effective from 1 January 2019 through the Electricity Supply Fees Determination 2019 (Jervis Bay Territory).

A number of factors were considered in developing the proposed 2019 electricity fees, including retail pricing of electricity in the nearby Shoalhaven region and the costs of providing electricity within the JBT.

The proposed fees are set out in a draft Determination which is available:

Tables comparing the current electricity supply fees to the proposed fees can be found starting overleaf.

If you would like to comment on the draft Determination, please send your written submission to the Administration at the address in the footer of this page or by email to jbt@infrastructure.gov.au

Submissions will be accepted up until 5.00pm on 21 September 2018.
