Powerlink provides our customers with advice early-on regarding potential connection options, to efficiently and confidently progress projects with certainty. Powerlink’s expertise continues throughout all project phases to effectively manage and deliver design, construction, testing, commissioning and handover of high voltage transmission line, substation and telecommunications network assets.

These types of connections are part of our non-regulated business. Non-regulated work involves providing connection and associated solutions on a commercial basis, with costs paid for by the company making the request and not electricity consumers.
