We're meeting the challenges of Queensland's ongoing growth through continued investment in our electricity network.
This investment will deliver an increase in capacity available across the state and supports the continued economic growth and prosperity of regional Queensland, where industrial development, population growth and increasing air-conditioning loads continue to drive demand.
For more information view our Distribution Annual Planning Reports.
We recognise that various groups and individuals are impacted by our major projects and infrastructure developments. For this reason, we've adopted a model for early community impact assessment and community engagement for major projects when they are in the planning and delivery stages.
We've also developed a Community Engagement Framework (PDF 79.8 kb) that provides an overview of some of the key steps involved in our engagement processes. This framework is the result of the Queensland Government Election Commitment 44 and has been developed in conjunction with the Department of Energy and Public Works (EPW). It also highlights the different levels of community engagement that may be suitable for a major infrastructure project.
As a corporate member of The International Association for Public Participation, Australasia (IAP2), our engagement practices are aligned with IAP2s Core Values, Code of Ethics and Public Participation Spectrum.

If you're unable to find information on a project in your area, it may be because the project has been deferred.
Projects are deferred for a number of reasons including changes in the electricity load, the availability of distributed energy options, economic factors, as well as changes to our electricity planning guidelines. We'll continue to monitor the future electricity needs of the region and commit to keeping the community updated if there is a need for a deferred project to progress in the future.
If you have questions about a project please do not hesitate to contact us on 13 74 66 or complete our project feedback form.
We commissioned the Charlton Substation in February 2018. Following commission, the substation site was fenced and landscaped using native plant species on the street frontage.
We have acquired land to build a new substation within Gracemere to provide a reliable power supply to the community and support future electricity needs of the region.
We are investing in the local electricity network to meet the increasing demand for electricity in the Mackay Central Business District.
