What we do

We own and operate 3 regulated electricity and gas networks. We’re owned by Australian Energy Holdings No 4 Pty Ltd. For more information, see About.

 

Electricity

Our network covers 80,000 km2, with 93% being in regional and rural areas. It consists of more than: 

  • 38,000km of overhead powerlines 
  • 6,900km of underground cable   
  • 330,000 power poles 
  • 90,000 streetlights

 

Our transmission network

Our transmission network transports power from where it’s generated to Victoria’s 5 distribution networks. We also help connect power to New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania.

Growth and future networks (including Mondo)

Growth and future networks provides contracted infrastructure asset and energy, and a range of utility services, to support the management of electricity, gas and water networks that fall outside the regulated asset base.

 

We're introducing more green energy to the grid by connecting wind farms, solar farms, and energy storage.Our mini-grids and solar programs are supporting regional communities to become more resilient and achieve their energy goals.

 

The Mondo water and gas field team supports a range of utility services, including Yarra Valley Water and Central Highlands Water.
