About us

Every day TransGrid connects you to the electricity you use, 24/7. As the operator and manager of the main high voltage transmission network in NSW and the ACT, we connect generators, distributors and major end users to the electricity they need, when they need it.

At TransGrid, we keep you and your way of life connected. Our core role is to provide safe, reliable, sustainable and affordable transmission services to NSW, the ACT and the National Electricity Market.

We take this role seriously. While transmission is a small component of the electricity bill, around 7% for households and businesses, we do not believe that consumers should pay more than necessary for a reliable electricity supply.  This keeps us honest. It is our responsibility to ensure we operate our business as efficiently as possible, to drive down costs and promote strong customer service.

Our network comprises 100 bulk supply substations and more than 13,000 kilometres of high voltage transmission lines and cables. Interconnected to QLD and VIC, the network provides a strong electricity system enabling energy trading between Australia’s three largest states along the east coast and supporting a competitive wholesale electricity market.
