Australian Energy Foundation
Through our partnership with the Australian Energy Foundation we're helping our customers to understand simple ways they can save power and lower their electricty bills with free over-the-phone, home energy consultations.
We know that electricity costs are a big part of the household budget and that many of our customers often find it hard to lower their bills without sacrificing convenience or comfort.

Designed and built by UTAS Architecture and Design Students, the innovative new perches will be installed alongside Greening Australia’s ‘Species Hotels’, and positioned in proximity to our power poles, which are known to be used as perches by large birds of prey, such as Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagles in Northern Midlands area.

Menzies Institute for Medical Research
We’ve partnered with the University of Tasmania’s Menzies Institute for Medical Research to support a study in ‘promoting mental health in high-risk occupations’.
This study by Dr Fiona Cocker will promote psychological capital in medical students and junior doctors in Hobart.
TasNetworks is enabling the collection of data to confirm compassion fatigue is a potentially modifiable predictor of psychological distress in this working population; and to our knowledge, a world first.
