Where is Jacana Energy available?

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.
