About our electrical contractor forums

Our forums aim to build awareness and understanding about:

  • compliance with legalities and business procedures
  • demand management initiatives
  • tariff prices and structure
  • connection issues
  • emerging technologies
  • Queensland's energy future.

Sessions are held across major Queensland towns and regional centres where possible, with Ergon Energy representatives from each region attending to answer queries local to the area.

Feedback from over a thousand electrical contractors who have attended past sesssions is reviewed to help determine the topics to cover in future forums.

If you would like to provide feedback about these forums or another topic, email us at electricalcontractors@ergon.com.au.
