Please note, your energy retailer is responsible for managing your account, including billing you for your energy use, and for organising connections, disconnections and new meter requests.
Evoenergy is a major employer in the Canberra region. From electricians to engineers, we employ over 300 local people that all help to keep your lights on.
Our team work around the clock to restore your power when storms and blackouts strike and support disaster relief efforts in other parts of the country and overseas.
On the gas side, we work with our contractor, Zinfra, to maintain our gas infrastructure across the ACT, Queanbeyan, Jerrabomberra, Bungendore and Nowra.
We're your local electricity and gas distributor and we've been part of the community for over 100 years. It all began in 1915, when the Kingston Power Station (now the world-renowned Canberra Glassworks), was switched on and the energy for our city was ignited. The Power Station remains the spiritual birthplace of both ActewAGL and Evoenergy, where our proudly local organisations began.
The Power Station was the first permanent building constructed in Canberra and generated and transmitted electricity at 5,500 volts. Initially electricity was supplied to Duntroon and Acton by transmission lines and the first streetlights were built in Acton.
Over the years, we've contributed to the building of Canberra's vital infrastructure. In the 1980's this included the full scale construction of Canberra's natural gas pipelines network. And we continue to lay the foundations for new suburbs and precincts today. We also own the NSW natural gas network in Queanbeyan, Jerrabomberra, Bungendore and Nowra.
We're an important part of the cities' history and we're here to help our city grow and prosper into the future, ensuring our electricity and gas networks are safe and reliable for generations to come.
