The Use-of-System Agreement is a contract between an electricity network (e.g. Aurora Energy) and an electricity retailer that sets out the terms so the retailer can use the local electricity network to supply electricity to its customers. The agreements cover how tariffs are structured, service levels and dispute resolution.
Aurora Energy has adopted the Electricity Authority's Model Use-of-System Agreements published in September 2012, with a minimal number of deviations, as noted below:
- Standard Use-of-System Agreement - 1 April 2014 (PDF)

Non-standard Contract Disclosures
Clause 2.4.12 of the Electricity Distribution Information Disclosure Determination 2012 requires Aurora Energy to publicly disclose prescribed terms and conditions (as defined in clause 1.4.3) of non-standard contracts. Aurora Energy has two such contracts.
