What makes up my power price?

Help topic:

It takes more than just Powershop to get electricity to your property. There’s a whole supply chain and everyone’s responsible for doing their bit. That means the pricing in your power bill is made up of a lot of different elements.


What you’ll actually see on your bill includes:

  • Usage charges – that’s to cover the electricity you’ve used.
  • Daily supply charge – this is a distribution charge that covers the maintenance of the poles and wires that gets electricity to your property.
  • GST – GST is applied to your usage and daily supply charge.
