Powerlink's role in the electricity supply chain is to transport high voltage electricity, generated at major power stations, through its transmission grid to the distribution networks owned by Energex, Ergon Energy and Essential Energy (in northern NSW) to supply customers.

We also transport electricity to high usage industrial customers such as rail companies, mines and mineral processing facilities, and to New South Wales via the Queensland/NSW Interconnector transmission line.
