We are a subsidiary of Energy Queensland Limited, a State government-owned corporation.
We build, operate and maintain the electricity distribution network in the growing region of South East Queensland which includes the major urban areas of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Logan, Ipswich, Redlands and Moreton Bay. Our electricity distribution area runs from the NSW border north to Gympie and west to the base of the Great Dividing Range.
Our world-class energy products, services and expertise has allowed us to provide electricity to homes and business for more than 100 years. Today, we provide distribution services to more than 1.4 million domestic and business connections, delivering electricity to a population base of around 3.4 million people.
This large responsibility brings with it the challenge of maintaining sufficient capacity to supply every home and business on the days when electricity demand is at its maximum, no matter where they are connected in the network.
To meet these expectations, we have a high-performing network that consists of property, plant and equipment assets worth about $12 billion.
These assets include in excess of:
- 54,200 km of total overhead and underground lines
- 680,000 poles (including both customer and public light poles)
- 380,000 public lights
- 50,000 distribution transformers.
