Every day TransGrid
connects you to the electricity you use, 24/7. As the operator and manager of
the main high voltage transmission network in NSW and the ACT, we connect
generators, distributors and major end users to the electricity they need, when
they need it.
At TransGrid, we keep
you and your way of life connected. Our core role is to provide safe, reliable, sustainable and affordable transmission services to NSW, the ACT and the National
We take this role
seriously. While transmission is a small component of the electricity bill,
around 7% for households and businesses, we do not believe that consumers
should pay more than necessary for a reliable electricity supply. This keeps us honest. It is our responsibility
to ensure we operate our business as efficiently as possible, to drive down
costs and promote strong customer service.
Our network comprises 100 bulk supply substations and more than 13,000 kilometres of high voltage
transmission lines and cables. Interconnected to QLD and VIC, the network
provides a strong electricity system enabling energy trading between
Australia’s three largest states along the east coast and supporting a
competitive wholesale electricity market.
