About Endeavour Energy
Endeavour Energy provides electricity to over 2.4 million Australians as one of three electricity distributors in New South Wales. They offer electricity services to residences and businesses across New South Wales, including sections of the Bankstown, Blue Mountains, Wollongong, Parramatta and Penrith councils.
The company has been in operation since 1995 as Integral Energy, until it rebranded as Endeavour Energy in March 2011. The NSW government owns 49.6% of the company and helps regulate safety and reliability. The other 50.4% of Endeavour Energy was leased out to Advance Energy in 2017 for a period of 99 years.
The company maintains approximately 416,000 power poles in a network area of more than 24,000 square kilometres. In 2018, Endeavour Energy proposed a new five-year plan for 2019 to 2024. The company strongly encourages customers to read it, give feedback and help contribute to the future of Endeavour Energy.
