We are celebrating our birthday!


With over 60 years servicing the national electricity market, this month we are celebrating our naming birthday.

 As TransGrid, we are proud to celebrate 20 years of connecting you to the energy you use, when and where you need it, 24 hours a day – 7 days a week.

We have a long history in the power business. In 1950, we started serving the community as part of the NSW Electricity Commission- transmitting electricity through the state to give the people of NSW a reliable, world class power system.

Today, TransGrid is the owner and manager of one of the largest high voltage transmission networks in Australia, connecting generators, distributors and major end users in NSW and the ACT.

Our network includes up to 12,800 kilometres of transmission line and underground cables and links to Queensland and Victoria, facilitating interstate energy trading.

The energy delivered by our network goes to more than three million households and businesses in NSW and the ACT, as well as to users in other states.

We’re looking forward to continuing our commitment to the community and you, the consumer. Behind every moment, we will be working to deliver a safe, reliable and efficient supply of electricity.
