What is unfair about power pricing?

The Electricity Networks Association is keen to have people focus on the fairness of how electricity costs are shared between consumers. But the bigger problem is the fairness of NSW and ACT network companies further increasing these costs on top of previous unjustified price rises.

The Electricity Network Association is pushing the view that the current structures for how we price power are “unfair”. In particular they are keen to point the finger at solar PV systems as the major driver of creating outcomes that are ‘unfair’ because they suggest solar allows households to avoid paying for the proportion of electricity network capacity which they use.  

The Networks Association is keen to have us focus on the fairness of how we divide up the pie of the costs associated with electricity provision among consumers. This is important and legitimate.
