AusNet Services’ electricity distribution network carries electricity to approximately 730,000 customers across eastern Victoria. This network is large and complex, consisting of around 50,000 kilometres of powerlines, more than 370,000 powerpoles, control systems and meters. Maintaining a network of this scale requires considerable expertise and investment. If you have visited areas such as the Yarra Valley on Melbourne’s eastern fringe, the forests of the Dandenong ranges, the rugged Victorian High Country, the Murray River around Corowa, or the remote coastal environments of Wilsons Promontory or Mallacoota in East Gippsland, you will have travelled through areas serviced by our distribution network. This predominantly rural network spans an area of 80,000 square kilometres of unique and diverse terrain, from Melbourne’s populated eastern urban fringe, through steep, heavily treed mountainous regions and harsh coastal environments. As well as challenging physical environments, this area includes some of Australia’s most bushfire-prone regions.
AusNet Services produces a range of reports and publications that demonstrate our commitment to providing safe, reliable and efficient energy supply to consumers. In doing this we demonstrate compliance with regulations. Some of these are listed under the links below.
