The electricity network
Our electricity network boundaries are from the Rangitata River in the north, to the Waitaki River in the south, and from the East Coast to Mount Cook in the west. The area stretches over 10,000 km2
The network, including 4,138 km of overhead and underground electricity lines, transports electricity from the national electricity transmission grid, owned and operated by Transpower, to homes and businesses in the South Canterbury region.
We are committed to managing our distribution assets in a safe, reliable and cost-effective manner that addresses required service levels and maintains a robust energy delivery system for our stakeholders.
Economic activity in our area of operation, particularly in the primary industry sector, strongly influences the configuration of the network,
