Your local energy provider

Our region’s energy is an important resource we all share. ActewAGL and our predecessors have been committed to the Canberra region for over 100 years so we have a big responsibility to the people who live here.

We’re here to inspire and implement energy solutions to empower you to waste less and save more.

Whether it’s providing expert advice by a team who get you because they’re locals too, or a better energy plan to meet your needs, or supporting the things that make the capital region such a great place to live—we’ll deliver the best, most personal experience we can.

Along with the brightest minds in the national’s capital, we’re focused to reimagine energy now and for future generations.

Powerfully local

Although ActewAGL was set up in October 2000, with our predecessors we've been supplying reliable essential services to Canberra and the region since 1915.

The journey began in 1915 with the Kingston Powerhouse, which was built to supply the newly established national capital. Over the years, we've contributed to the building of Canberra’s vital infrastructure and we continue to lay the foundations for new suburbs and precincts.

Who owns ActewAGL?

ActewAGL was set up in October 2000 when the Australian Gas Light Company (AGL) and Icon Water Limited (formerly ACTEW Corporation), an ACT Government owned corporation, entered into Australia's first utility joint venture. Today ActewAGL is made up of two partnerships:

  • ActewAGL Retail is owned equally by Icon Water Limited and AGL Energy Ltd via subsidiary companies.
  • ActewAGL Distribution is owned equally by Icon Water Limited and Jemena Ltd via subsidiary companies.
