We formed on 1 July 2014, through a merger between Aurora Energy’s distribution network (the poles and wires) and Transend Networks (the big towers and lines). We're a Tasmanian state-owned corporation that supplies power from the generation source to homes and businesses through a network of transmission towers, substations and powerlines.

We also:

  • Build, maintain and operate the network
  • Establish new connections where infrastructure does not currently exist
  • Respond to, and repair, outages and faults
  • Operate and maintain a 24-hour fault call centre
  • Read, replace and repair your meter
  • Provide education, advice and information about electrical safety
  • Deliver nationally accredited training to lineworker apprentices, contracts and sub-contractors, local councils and civil construction organisations
  • Own and operate a telecommunications business that serves customers in the electricity industry and other industries


We own, operate and maintain 3564 circuit kilometres of transmission lines and underground cables, 49 transmission substations and six switching stations.


We own, operate and maintain 22,400km of distribution overhead lines and underground cables, 227,000 power poles, 18 large distribution substations and 33,000 small distribution substations. There's also 20,000 embedded generation and photovoltaic (PV) grid-connected installations connected to the distribution network.


We own, operate and maintain telecommunication network infrastructure to enable safe and efficient operation of the electricity system.
