Basic Information
Ausgrid is an electricity distribution company which owns, maintains and operates the electrical networks supplying 1.8 million customers in Sydney, the Central Coast and Hunter regions of New South Wales, Australia. It was formed in 2011 from the previously state-owned energy retailer/distributor, EnergyAustralia, when the retail division of the company, along with the EnergyAustralia brand, was sold by the Government of New South Wales, and the remainder renamed Ausgrid. Their network is made up of substations, power lines, underground cables and power poles, spanning 22,275 square kilometres. Keeping innovation in mind, they are also implementing demand management solutions to incentivise solar and battery uptake and encourage investment in energy efficiency where it reduces the need for network investment.
