How CS Energy fits into Australia's electricity system

Learning centre

Ever wondered how Australia’s complex energy industry actually works? Here we’ll explain how electricity reaches your home or business, and where CS Energy fits into the process.
 

Here’s how it works:

CS Energy sells electricity into the wholesale national electricity market (NEM) from the Callide, Kogan Creek, Wivenhoe and Gladstone power stations. 

The diagram below outlines how electricity travels from a power station to arrive at homes and businesses and how it is bought and sold.
