Information about Network Charges


Genesis invoices you for your energy costs, the lines company charges for your area as well as other costs such as meter reading, Government levies, taxes and our service charge. The Network Charges shown on your bill are a total of the applicable rates from your local lines company and a charge from Genesis.

Not all networks have the same charges, and we recommend you check your local lines company for more details on their different rates and charges.

Networks have a range of charges specific to business accounts. These charges are related to supply across a network, management of demand during peak periods, or for the type of metering you have. Below is a summary of these charges.

Daily fixed charge
