Its not compulsory for you to purchase your electricity through the Embedded Network. The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) requires that residents within an embedded network are entitled to source their electricity from a retailer of their choice. As such, you are entitled to seek quotations for the supply of electricity direct from any retailer. If you are able to secure a rate that you believe is better than the rates you are receiving as part of the embedded network you can enter into a contract for supply with that retailer.
A daily charge is a fee for accessing and maintaining an energy distributors network. These fees are regulated by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) and vary depending on where you live. For more information click here

The embedded network is the on-site network of internal wiring and meters that distributes the electricity from the main supply point to the electricity users, such as the tenants and common areas. This network is usually owned and operated by the body corporate or the owner of the premise. By eliminating the need for the distributor to individually meter each tenant, the whole site is supplied by one connection from the local distribution network. The owner of the site becomes the customer of the distributor and the retailer, instead of previously where each tenant on the premise had an individual contract with the distributor and retailer.
