Some of the more interesting work we get is working on Essential Energy’s transmission network. Our linesmen relish the challenge as this work is “proper” linework. It’s often working at higher heights than normal and using all their linesman skills.
Stralis Energy work along side other Electrical Distribution Contractors to get this work done and more than often requires us to travel as the transmission network spans over large distances over the country to supply Australia with power.
What is the transmission network?
In New South Wales our electrical supply travels through 3 different systems:
- Transmission and,
- Finally distribution
Whilst Transgrid manages the high voltage transmission lines the rest are controlled and managed by 3 Electricity Distributors:
- Essential Energy
These companies transport the electric and then retail companies sell the electricity.
