About us

We are the largest distributor of electricity on Australia’s east coast, providing power to 1.8 million customers, that’s over 4 million Australians relying on us everyday.

Our network is made up of substations, powerlines, underground cables and power poles, spanning 22,275 square kilometres throughout Sydney, the Central Coast and the Hunter Valley.

On 1 December 2016 the NSW Government entered into a partnership with AustralianSuper and IFM Investors to operate Ausgrid under a long-term lease.

Under the new ownership arrangements, we have maintained our focus on safety and reliability. Day-to-day we are actively operating, maintaining, repairing and building our electricity network.

Long term we are planning for a future where renewables play a major role in the power mix and households and businesses can generate their own energy and sell it back to the grid.
