EVP Regional tagline - orange

We are a regional business that thinks on a global level. Our people are determined, passionate and curious, and are playing their part in the future of energy.

You can learn a trade, work with cutting-edge technology and be a part of varied and interesting projects. You can do work you are passionate about, see the best of regional New South Wales, and push the boundaries to create innovative energy solutions.

We offer employment opportunities from trade to graduate level and understand we need the best people on our team to empower communities to share and use energy for a better tomorrow.

Our network powers 95 per cent of NSW and parts of southern Queensland, connecting homes, hospitals, schools, businesses, and services. For us it’s more than just a job – it’s an opportunity to make a positive contribution to our community.
