What We Do

CitiPower, Powercor and United Energy own and operate the electricity distribution networks servicing 1.9 million customers located across 65% of Victoria. Through Beon Energy Solutions, we’re also developing large-scale solar and wind farms, as well as building major power infrastructure.

We provide reliable, safe and affordable electricity, and our businesses are independently rated as the best in the country for their efficiency. Sustaining this is all the more critical and challenging as greater electrification of homes, fleets, and industries becomes a core strategy for reducing carbon emissions and addressing climate change.

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.

There are five steps in the energy supply chain that gets electricity to your home or business.

Power generation

It starts with large-scale generators – hydro, wind, solar, coal and gas-fired – that produce the electricity in the National Electricity Market.


Generated electricity is transported at high voltage along transmission lines. These are the large towers with multiple powerlines that you’ll see across the country.


CitiPower and Powercor take the power from these transmission lines, convert into a lower voltage, and then distribute it via our network of poles and wires to your home or business. Our role is to make sure power is safely and reliably delivered to your electricity meter.

Meter management

We take care of your electricity meter, which measures the amount of electricity that you use.

Energy retailer

We share your electricity data with your energy retailer, who is responsible for sending your electricity bills. You’ll need to talk to them regarding your pricing plan or to pay your bills.

Our key activities are

  • Maintaining network safety and reliability to meet the current power supply needs of our customers
  • Extending and upgrading the network so that the future power supply needs of customers are met when required
  • Operating the network 24×7
  • Connecting new customers to the network
  • Maintaining the public lighting system
  • Reading electricity meters
  • Providing meter data to retailers.

People at CitiPower and Powercor have diverse backgrounds, cultures, religions, LGBTIQ+ identities, ages and education levels.

Building an inclusive working environment ensures everyone is valued and trusted and feels safe to be their whole authentic self.

Our Inclusion and Diversity Committee develops and implements ways of working that aim to make our workplaces as inclusive and diverse as possible.  Our Inclusion and Diversity Strategy focuses on four key factors:

  • Inclusion: Recognising and supporting LGBTIQ+ communities through our Sparkle Pride network, cultural diversity and the inclusion of those with disabilities to ensure all have a sense of belonging. Special dates such as Wear it Purple Day and Diwali have events and educational opportunities organised across the organisation.
  • Gender diversity: Working towards greater gender balance across our business, filling more jobs and leadership positions with women, including development opportunities.
  • Aboriginal engagement: Creating pathways for Indigenous employment and opportunities to involve Indigenous organisations in the work we do.
  • Flexible working conditions: Ensuring flexible options are available that balance the needs of our people with the needs of the business – in a way that is beneficial for both.

Supporting Gender Diversity

The organisation is committed to gender targets set to ensure continuous improvement in the representation of both women in leadership and women in each business unit.

We’re investing for the future – ensuring diversity in field and trade roles; through the provision of apprenticeships, graduates and scholarship programs to support both.

We are proud to be a WORK180-endorsed employer for women. Our commitment to helping all women thrive in the workplace includes initiatives such as our Women in Power network, Women in Engineering scholarships, Women studying Pre-Apprenticeships in Electrotechnology scholarships, a generous parental leave policy, flexible working options and our extensive health and wellbeing program.

Our Women in Power network was formed in 2017 and is a group of passionate women and men in the business who are working together to achieve our vision of “connecting women”. The network plans a calendar of events throughout the year, such as International Women’s Day events, development sessions, volunteering and networking opportunities focused on developing and retaining women in our business.

Some facts about our team

  • 2,000: How many people work with us, many of them working with our Network Services team and Customer Group.
  • 12 years: The average length of service across our team.
  • 25%: Our target for the number of women in our workforce by 2026, with 22% of our managerial roles held by women too.
  • 44 years: The average age of our team members.

LGBTIQ+ at CitiPower and Powercor

People at CitiPower and Powercor have diverse backgrounds, cultures, religions, LGBTIQ+ identities, ages and education levels.

Building an inclusive working environment ensures everyone is valued and trusted and feels safe to be their whole authentic self.

Sparkle, our pride network, marks events significant to LGBTIQ+ people, such as Wear it Purple Day, IDAHOBIT and Pride; promotes the use of inclusive language in the workplace and runs networking events to help establish a sense of community.


Our teams are at the forefront of finding solutions to huge challenges in how we contribute to achieving net zero emissions, keep our networks safe and reliable in the face of climate change, and make the most of new technology to benefit our customers and communities.

Hear from some industry-leading experts driving the change and innovation necessary to build safe and resilient networks, help reduce carbon emissions and support some of the biggest projects in Victoria.

Digital Innovation

Digital Product Manager Peter McKay is the architect of new technologies that are used to manage and maintain our vast and often remote network. Using big data, smart technology and a couple of helicopters, his team has enabled the use of LiDAR analytics for asset and vegetation management. They’re now using high-resolution UAV photography captured by drones to help with remote pole inspections.

Community Battery Programs

Collaborating with communities, energy retailers and government is the realm of Regulated Opportunities Lead Genevieve Hart, who is managing a portfolio of projects supporting community energy ambitions, particularly with respect to the rollout of batteries to support networks and greater solar exports.

Batteries will be an essential part of our networks in the future as we transition to more renewable energy.  That is because, in a clean energy future, power is plentiful in the middle of the day.

By storing energy locally, batteries perform an important role in addressing the mismatch between when renewable energy is abundant and when household electricity demand is highest in the late afternoon and evening peak. The stored energy can be shared and used when it is needed most.

5-Minute Settlement

This $55 million project meant significant changes to 44 of our systems in one of the largest IT projects undertaken by our business. It enables customers’ smart meters and their associated systems to collect, store and send data about energy consumption in 5-minute increments.

Led by IT Delivery Lead, Market Compliance, Eugene Tverdolov, this 3-year project was delivered on time in late 2021 by a team of over 100. It has established an IT system capability vital for enabling customer participation in future energy markets through aggregators and Virtual Power Plants.

Advanced Network Safety in Bushfire Risk Areas

Luke Plocinski was part of the pioneering Powercor team responsible for installing advanced network safety devices in high bushfire risk areas. The team won the 2021 Victorian Project of the Year Award from the Australian Institute of Project Management for the outstanding delivery of the second of three phases of the multi-year rollout.

International Award for Project Management

Nick Casey was part of the CitiPower Urban Projects team that won Gold at the 2021 International Project Management Association Awards. This was for their work in supporting the Department of Transport and Yarra Trams to create the first fully accessible tram route in Melbourne.
