Jacana Energy electricity
Jacana Energy is a government-owned energy company with more than 80,000 customers across the Northern Territory. The retailer offers electricity plans for residences, small businesses and commercial organisations in urban, rural and remote sections of the Territory.
Jacana was created as part of the 2014 structural separation of the Power and Water Corporation into two separate companies. The Power and Water Corporation is still the electricity distributor for most of the Northern Territory and is responsible for maintaining electricity poles and wires. Jacana, on the other hand, operates purely as a retailer to work directly with customers.

Can I get solar power?
Jacana offers solar power plans with solar feed-in tariffs to both residential and commercial customers. However, the retailer doesn't install solar systems, so you'll need to arrange installation or move into a home with a PV system before signing up for a solar plan.
Can I get GreenPower?
No, Jacana Energy isn't GreenPower certified.
