Gravity Pricing

The Essential Services Commission’s (ESC) final decision on our 2016-2020 Water Plan means our gravity irrigators will move to a two-district pricing model.

For our larger and medium customers, average prices are expected to be flat or fall. Our smaller customers will see small prices rises.

The two area structure provides more stability for our customers. It means they will be able to plan for the future with more certainty. Most importantly this change will protect our customers from price shocks caused by a natural disaster, a reduction in delivery share and from lower than planned water deliveries.
