ABOUT US - Who We Are
[On 4 August 2014 we changed our trading name from SP AusNet to AusNet Services. Read the Media Release.]
AusNet Services is Victoria's largest energy delivery service business, owning and operating approximately $11 billion of electricity and gas distribution assets that connect into more than 1.3 million Victorian homes and businesses.
We own and operate Victoria’s electricity transmission network, responsible for transporting electricity from generation sources – via 49 terminal stations, 13,000 towers and 6,500 kilometres of high-voltage powerlines – into Victoria’s five lower-voltage distribution networks.
We also own and operate an electricity distribution network with more than 49,816 kilometres of powerlines and 380,000 powerpoles that feed lower-voltage electricity to 679,000 properties in Melbourne’s north east and across all of eastern Victoria.
In addition, AusNet Services owns and operates a gas distribution network that supplies natural gas to approximately 647,000 properties in central and western Victoria via 10,478 kilometres of underground pipelines.
In terms of customers, that represents a number that is close in number to our meter count - which is over 700,000 electricity meters and over 600,000 gas meters. That's a lot of families and businesses and it means we bring the benefit of safe, reliable and efficient energy to millions of Australians, every day.
