Open a centralised electricity account

We provide electricity to apartment blocks and buildings with centralised electricity (sometimes known as embedded electricity). Each apartment and retail tenancy has its own electricity meter – so you’re only billed for the electricity you use.

Some apartments may also have a gas cooktop and share a centralised hot water system. Check with your Owners' Corporation, Landlord or Building Manager if you also need an Origin Hot Water account for these services.
