Five Year Plan
ATCO’s prices for the gas supply network are overseen by an economic regulator – the Economic Regulation Authority (ERA).
Every five years we submit our plan and proposed prices for consideration and approval. Our programs are designed to ensure gas remains safe, reliable and affordable – now and in the future.
Planning for growth
Residential customers are already enjoying the benefits of a competitive gas market, with deep price discounts offered by retailers. Our 2020-24 Plan continues to support competition.
We’re also doing our bit to keep gas distribution prices as affordable as possible, by balancing investment with affordability.
The price of safety
A safe and reliable gas network requires maintenance – valves must be checked, ageing gas mains replaced and pipelines looked after. And that will always require investment.
However as one of the most efficient gas distributors in the country, ATCO’s 2020-24 Plan manages to keep price rises to a minimum. The average cost for residential customers to access ATCO’s network will go up in real terms by 5.77 per cent in 2020, and around 0.5 per cent each following year from 2021 to 2024.
2020-24 Final Plan
Our 2020-2024 Plan discusses ATCO’s investment plans for the WA gas network which incorporates feedback we received from our customers and industry through our extensive consultation process.
In November 2019, the ERA released its Final Decision on ATCO’s 2020-24 Plan.
The final plan can be found on the ERA website.
