New Members sought for Essential Energy Advocacy Group

Essential Energy is seeking people to represent customers and key consumer groups on electricity network issues as part of its Customer Advocacy Group.

Regional Manager Northern, Mark Summers, said the group provided Essential Energy with a valuable insight into customers’ views on energy issues.

“The Customer Advocacy Group provides a proactive forum to consult and engage with our customer base around matters related to electricity supply and associated services in regional and rural NSW,” Mark said.

“We are currently seeking expressions of interest from individuals to represent customers within Essential Energy’s distribution network – which covers 95 per cent of NSW and parts of Southern Queensland – to be part of the 12-member group.”

The Customer Advocacy Group meets regularly and represents consumer groups, low-income households, Indigenous and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, residential and business customers, those in rural and remote areas, and primary producers.

“We are looking for people who have an interest in electricity network issues and a focus on servicing customer groups and organisations within regional and rural communities,” Mark added.
