Engaging with you
We're committed to engaging with you about our activities and plans to create a better tomorrow. Our engagement framework (PDF) assists us to drive a culture of customer first aligned to our Customer Charter (PDF).
Our free electrical safety in schools program educates primary-school aged kids across Tassie about the safe use of electricity. Trained presenters deliver interactive sessions tailored to children (kindergarten to Year 6) that run for a minimum of 45 minutes. Would you like us to visit your child’s school? Contact us and request a session.
We value our relationship with you and our Customer Council is one of the ways we encourage two-way communication.
Our Customer Council is made up of Tasmanian customers and consumer representatives and assists us to have an ongoing conversation about issues that interest you, such as the price, reliability and safety of electricity, the costs and benefits of possible projects, and the environmental impacts of our business.

Electric Vehicle Partnership
An electric vehicle (a Nissan Leaf) has been added to the CTST fleet and is used to transport CTST clients to social and non-emergency medical appointments throughout the greater Hobart area, which will greatly assist in managing the increasing demand for medical-related transport.
We work with CTST to share knowledge and experience on how electric vehicles may be used as part of a fleet, and by the Tasmanian public more generally. The data and user experience captured through this partnership will allow us to gather important information on usage and charging patterns, which will inform future network design and ensure our electricity network is electric vehicle-friendly.

PhD Research of James Pay
James Pay is studying the behavioural ecology of the endangered Tasmanian Wedge-tailed eagle, which includes monitoring eagle movements via GPS. Despite their endangered status, there is very little known about the behavioural ecology of Wedge-tailed eagles, other than they are extremely sensitive to disturbance during the breeding season.
The aim of the research is to clarify the behavioural ecology of the Tasmanian Wedge-tailed eagle and use this information to help improve management actions. The outcomes of this partnership also support our Threatened Bird Strategy.
