CitiPower and Powercor own and operate two of Australia’s largest electricity networks, supplying power to almost 1.1 million customers.

CitiPower owns and manages a 157 square kilometre electricity distribution network. It provides power for more than 300,000 customers in Melbourne’s CBD and inner suburbs.

Powercor owns and operates Victoria’s largest electricity distribution network, with more than half a million poles and 82,000 kilometres of power lines. The network provides electricity for nearly 750,000 customers in central and western Victoria, as well as Melbourne’s western suburbs.

Both networks are closely monitored, and millions of dollars are invested each year to make sure the networks are safe and reliable.
