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
- 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.
- Electricity is only available in remote areas and there is a limit to the number of customers who can install solar in each community.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
How green is Power and Water
No, Power and Water isn't GreenPower certified.
