What is an electricity retailer?Return To Top

Your retailer sells you electricity and bills you for it. SA Power Networks is not an electricity retailer - we are South Australia's electricity distributor, responsible for operating the distribution network that delivers power to your home or business. See retailers for more information.

Why does SA Power Networks need access to my property?Return To Top

There are times when SA Power Networks needs to have convenient and unhindered access to your property. This may be for the purpose of reading your meter, or to inspect, test and repair equipment or to restore your electricity supply.

All SA Power Networks representatives carry formal identification, which you may request to see.

If you have specific requests relating to access to your property (such as security), or if there is a safety risk to our staff member (such as an unleashed dog), please inform us.

We respect your property and will remain onsite only for the minimum time it will take us to complete the purpose of our visit.
