Welcome to Energy Queensland
Introducing Australia’s largest electricity distribution business.
Energy Queensland is the result of merging Ergon Energy and Energex, creating a single energy company that powers communities from Tweed Heads up to the Torres Strait and from Brisbane across to Birdsville.
Bringing these organisations together is not just about efficiency, but about creating a bright new future for the state’s energy system.
Energy Queensland provides an opportunity to deliver better outcomes for customers, employees and all Queenslanders. We will effectively manage Queensland’s electricity network and prepare it for the future needs of the energy market.
Energy Queensland is finding ways to minimise the impact of electricity network costs on customers, and release funds for better services for all Queenslanders. We will also support growth and development of regional Queensland, helping to keep people in local communities.
To become a customer-oriented energy business that serves the energy needs of today and looks to the future. A business that strives to give customers the electricity services they value. This means providing customers with more choice and control over their energy use and helping them access the next wave of renewable and innovative energy options. An energy business that connects communities, with a focus on safe and reliable electricity supply.

Ergon owns and operates 33 stand-alone power stations that provide electricity supply to isolated communities not connected to the main electricity grid. Its Retail business sells electricity to residential and business customers. Ergon is actively involved in alternative energy generation solutions and is one of Australia's largest purchasers of renewable energy.
