The National Electricity Market (NEM) covers all Australia except the NT and WA. The NEM is both a wholesale electricity market and the physical power system used to transport power.
Within the NEM customer connections area classified as large or small:
- Large market customers can appoint their own MC and instruct their electricity retailer about the appointment.
- Small consumers do not currently have an option to engage their own MC and are required to liaise directly with their electricity retailer.
Generally, sites classified as small are residential premises, however exceptions to this are common. The below National Meter Identifier (NMI) classification codes can help you to classify your NMI size:
|Queensland||>=100 MWh||<100 MWh|
|South Australia||>=160 MWh||<160 MWh|
|New South Wales||>=160 MWh||<160 MWh|
|Australian Capital Territory||>=160 MWh||<160 MWh|
|Victoria||>=160 MWh||<160 MWh|
|Tasmania||>=150 MWh||<150 MWh|
The above values are based on annual usage. Electricity bills are generally provided in Kilowatt hours (Kwh). A megawatt hour (Mwh) is equal to 1,000 Kilowatt hours (Kwh). Threshold limits are subject to change, please refer to the AEMO for more information http://www.aemo.com.au
