The CPD charge is a monthly charge included on your electricity bill. The CPD charge is calculated by multiplying a fixed price (the CPD price) by the average of your peak electricity demand during the CPD window on each of the five nominated CPD days. Your average peak electricity demand is measured in kilovolt-ampere (kVA). The example below shows how we calculate your CPD charge.
If your business uses more than 160 MWh of electricity per year and you are assigned to a CPD tariff, you are already part of the program.
The annual CPD tariffs are:
NSP56, NSP75, NSP76, NSP77, NSP78, NSP81, NSP82, NSP83, NSP91, NSP94, NSP95
Almost all our large business customers are already on a CPD tariff, but to confirm, please contact us on 1300 451 331.
