Pricing Submission 2020-24

The Essential Services Commission (ESC) has now provided its final determination on the highly anticipated GMW Pricing Submission 2020-24.

You can view our approved Pricing Submission (2020-2024) here and the ESC’s decision here.

Importantly, the ESC’s decision confirmed GMW’s proposal for a landmark reduction in its revenue requirement, enabling the organisation to reduce costs and implement several important changes to its tariff structure.

Our Pricing Submission delivers a fairer deal for all. Customer feedback has included the need for a reliable supply, credible business, fair pricing, efficient operations, responsive services and simple systems. You can expect to see this commitment and continuous improvement across all areas of the GMW business.
