Draft decision by ESC to cut amount Victorian gas suppliers can charge for distribution of natural gas: 10 per cent cut on distribution

Posted by gasweek on 26 September, 2007

A draft decision by the Essential Services Commission (ESC), to cut the amount gas suppliers charge for the distribution of natural gas would reduce average distribution charges by more than 10 per cent, will put some downward pressure on gas bills. The cost of distributing gas represents around 40 per cent of a customer’s gas bill.

Drought spiked gas demand: However a 23 per cent increase allowed capital expenditure over the next 5 years, compared to the current period.
