Powerlink - powerlink.com.au
Powerlink Queensland is a Government Owned Corporation that owns, develops, operates and maintains the electricity transmission network in Queensland. Our network runs approximately 1,700km from Cairns down to New South Wales.
Powerlink’s role in the electricity supply chain is to transport high voltage electricity, generated at major power stations, through its transmission grid to the distribution networks owned by Energex and Ergon Energy (part of the Energy Queensland Group) and Essential Energy (in northern New South Wales) to supply customers.
We also transport electricity to high usage industrial customers such as rail companies, mines and mineral processing facilities, and to New South Wales via the Queensland/NSW Interconnector transmission line.
Not only do we play a part in safely delivering electricity to close to five million Queenslanders supporting our modern lifestyles, we also play a key role in powering the Queensland economy.
