DOC: 509 KB PDF: 1466 KB ReadSpeaker

The Australian Government facilitates the provision of electricity in the Jervis Bay Territory (JBT) through the Jervis Bay Territory Administration (Administration).

In July 2014, the Australian Government repealed the carbon tax legislation. As a result of that repeal the Government proposes to reduce electricity supply fees through the Amended Electricity Supply Fees Determination 2014 (Jervis Bay Territory) (Draft Determination). In developing the amended supply fees, a number of factors have been considered including the retail pricing of electricity in the nearby Shoalhaven region and the costs associated with providing electricity to the JBT.

The amended fees will be backdated to 1 July 2014, the effective date of the carbon tax repeal. As a result of the fees being amended, most customers will receive a credit on their next bill.

A table comparing the current electricity supply fees to the amended fees can be found below.

A copy of the Draft Determination is available:

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.

Due to the Christmas/New Year holiday period this consultation has an extended closing date. Written submissions will be accepted up until close of business on Friday 9 January 2014.
