Breakdown of the bill

TransGrid understands electricity is an essential service and that consumers should pay no more than necessary for their electricity supply.

With transmission costs accounting for around 7% of an average NSW household electricity bill, we recognise that our capacity to plan the network and operate our business as efficiently and as responsibly as possible has a direct impact on bill payers.

For households, an affordable electricity service is essential in an environment of increasing pressures on the cost of living. For small businesses and large industrial users, an affordable electricity service can provide the competitive edge in Australian and international markets.

We understand that although transmission is a relatively small component of most bills, every dollar is important.
