Our job isn't easy, but it's an important and rewarding one. Over 2,000 of us – tradies, lineworkers, engineers and more – keep power supplies reliable for around 1.1 million customers in north and western Victoria and the Melbourne CBD.
Say hello to some good people in power.
Nick and Aaron
Field Leader Ardeer & Field Operations Manager Geelong
Featuring in our latest "Australia vs Kiwis" ads, Nick and Aaron share our passion for Victorian Cricket.
As Good People in Power, we believe neighbourhoods that participate in sport build resilience through stronger, safer communities. Which is why we're proud to support the areas we operate in through our major sponsorship of Cricket Victoria.
We're also a driving force powering the CitiPower Centre at Junction Oval, so you won't miss an over! And through the CitiPower and Cricket Victoria Canteen Grant, we're also committed to improving the safety of local cricket club electrical facilities (and making sure we keep the dim sums hot!).
Will is a qualified lineworker, specifically making sure smart meters work accurately. Smart meters are really important to ensure your power is reliable and bills are correct.
In the Powercor ‘Storm’ ad, Will and his team respond to a blackout. When extreme weather damages the network, our teams prepare and respond quickly to restore power.
Always stay away from fallen powerlines and report issues to us on 13 24 12.

Construction Project Lead & Apprentice Lineworker
Heroes of the Powercor #Lineylife ad, Jay and James are in a Kyneton-based team of lineworkers who inspect, maintain and build our network - keeping it resilient to service around two-thirds of Victoria.
Our control centre monitors your supply 24/7/365 to keep it over 99.9% reliable. In our CitiPower network, recent upgrades in the CBD mean power outages are fixed in an average of 35 minutes.
In Powercor areas, where longer distances are involved, restoring power can take an average of 190 minutes.
