Electricity network and jurisdictional charges
Evoenergy is Canberra’s local energy distributor—we own and operate the electricity and gas networks in the ACT. We make sure that our electricity network, the electricity powerlines and power poles, is maintained and providing reliable supply to houses and businesses.
The cost of supplying electricity is passed on to you through the bill you receive from your energy retailer. Your electricity bill reflects the retailer's service charge and the electricity price, as well as the network and jurisdictional charges that the retailer collects on Evoenergy's behalf.
The charges that Evoenergy pass on through your retailer typically make up around 50 percent of your total electricity bill and consist of:
Distribution and transmission costs, and
Jurisdictional charges (ACT Government renewable energy schemes, taxes and levies)
