How does electricity get to you?

Aurora Energy owns and manages the local network of poles, power lines, underground cables, substations and other equipment that deliver power.

We're not the only ones responsible in connecting your home with electricity. Several companies work together to supply your electricity, from generation and transmission to sending you your power bill.
