ElectraNet’s core business is to build, own, operate and maintain the electricity transmission highways that transport electricity from generators and interconnectors to distribution networks and large direct-connect industrial customers.

The existing network comprises 95 high-voltage substations and approximately 5,600 circuit kilometres of high-voltage transmission lines that cover a total area of 200,000 square kilometres. ElectraNet’s Flagship projects are Project Energy Connect, Synchronous Condensers, the Eyre Peninsula Line Upgrade and the Upper North Connection.
