Ausgrid acknowledges our obligations under the Heritage Act 1977 to manage our heritage assets on behalf of the community. Under section 170 of the Heritage Act 1977, we maintain a register that details each item of environmental heritage that we own and manage. We own and manage nearly 200 heritage assets, almost all of which are distribution and zone substations.  This register is available for public inspection from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and is updated from time to time.

Twelve of our heritage assets are also listed on the State Heritage Register. Ausgrid manages all of our heritage assets in accordance with relevant legislation and guidelines. Ausgrid has a Heritage Asset Management Strategy to assist in the conservation of our heritage assets.
