Where is Power and Water Energy Available?

Power and Water Corporation is an NT Government-owned company and the largest distributor of electricity, water and sewerage services across the Northern Territory. The corporation also retails electricity to remote communities through its not-for-profit arm, Indigenous Essential Services (IES).

IES services 72 remote towns that Power and Water distributes electricity to. It also retails electricity in Jabiru, Nhulunbuy and Alyangula, though Power and Water is not the distributor in those areas.

If you are an NT resident living outside of Darwin, Alice Springs, Katherine or Tennant Creek, your power (as well as your water and sewerage) is most likely provided by IES.

A quick review of Power and Water Energy

Pros

  • Power and Water is the only electricity provider in most Northern Territory remote communities.
  • The retailer offers 24/7 customer support and has several customer service centers for those who prefer in-person assistance.

Cons

  • Electricity is only available in remote areas and there is a limit to the number of customers who can install solar in each community.

Solar panel

Does Power and Water offer solar?

Yes, Power and Water offers solar plans. However, you'll have to apply for an assessment to see if you're eligible. This is because most remote communities run off of isolated power stations, which can be overwhelmed by too much power being fed back into the system.

There is a limit to the number of domestic PV solar systems allowed in each remote community, so if your community has already reached its limit, you won't be able to connect your PV system to the grid or install a new PV system.

To find out if you're eligible for solar, you'll need to complete a rooftop PV application form and send it to remotedevelopment@powerwater.com.au.

Important notes: The estimated price we show by default is based on a single rate tariff. On your bill this might be known as a 'peak tariff', 'peak only' or an 'anytime tariff'. There are other tariff types available to customers and you may need to contact your provider if you are on these tariffs:

  • Single rate with a controlled load
  • Time of use
  • Time of use with a controlled load

The price estimate should not be used as an official quote, but an indication of what your costs may be on the plan. It varies based on whether you provide us with your bill details. You can learn more here.
