Who we are

CitiPower and Powercor are leading network distributors in the National Electricity Market.

We provide safe, reliable and affordable power to about 1.2 million Victorian customers every day. To do this, we operate a network of poles, wires and infrastructure that distribute electricity to and from our customers.

In other words, we bring power produced by electricity generators to our customers’ meters. We also manage the meters (almost all of which are advanced, smart meters) and provide the meter data to energy retailers who issue your electricity bills.

As more people and businesses install rooftop solar and batteries, we are also the network that you export into when you want to get paid for the extra power you generate and share it with others.

CitiPower supplies 332,000 customer connections in the Melbourne CBD and inner suburbs. With forecasts expecting Melbourne to become Australia’s most populous city, our electricity is relied upon by customers ranging from residents, small businesses and major office buildings to world-class sporting, public health, education and cultural precincts.
