Updated timing on final price plan submission

On August 20, 2019, Jemena provided an update to the People’s Panel to explain that there would be a change to annual pricing from Calendar Year to Financial Year to better align with retail pricing.

The Panel were advised that this would me our final price plan would be submitted to the Australian Energy Regulator 6 months later than initially planned, but that the change would align Victoria with the rest of Australia.

The group unanimously agreed that their previous recommendations that formed part of the Draft Plan would not change despite the delayed timing. The new submission date will be January 31, 2020.

Welcome to our Draft Plan home page

Jemena manages the electricity grid that powers over 330,000 customers in Melbourne's north and west.

We are part of a broader energy supply chain that spans electricity production to retailing, and our charges make up around 35% of a typical residential customer’s electricity bill.

Our Draft Plan, covering 2021-25 is a summary of what we have learned to date from our customers, and how we have taken their feedback and built a strategy for our network.




Draft Plan highlights

  • We are planning to cap our proposed network charges below the rate of inflation, resulting in a modest decrease in distribution network prices of 0.5 per cent in 2021 excluding the impacts of inflation.
  • When we combine these network service savings with the advance metering services that we provide to our residential customers we will pass on average savings of $90 over the next regulatory period.
  • Connect over 37,000 homes and 500 businesses in north-west Melbourne.
  • We are seeking to increase revenue by 4 per cent , our proposed network charges will be capped at no more than the rate of inflation.
  • We are proposing to reduce our capital expenditure by around $50 million while still maintaining a reliable network. This is in line with residential customer views, which asked Jemena to keep reliability levels as they currently are.
  • Invest in the grid to ensure we can connect over 70 MW of new renewable energy to the grid.
