Name change for ActewAGL Energy Networks

September 22, 2017

On 22 September 2017, the CEO ActewAGL announced that from 1 January 2018 the ActewAGL owned Electricity and Gas Networks business will change its name to Evoenergy.  

Icon Water is a 50% owner of both ActewAGL (Retail brand) and Evoenergy (Networks brand).  We are pleased that this change will help customers better understand the difference between the retail part and the infrastructure (poles and wires) part of our investment.

From 1 January 2018, Evoenergy will manage the electricity network in the ACT and the gas network in the ACT, Queanbeyan, Jerrabomberra, Bungendore and Nowra. ActewAGL will continue as the Retail brand, which sells electricity and gas to customers in competition with other retail businesses and looks after the billing and customer enquiries. 

This name change meets the requirements of the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) ring-fencing guidelines which came into effect on 30 November 2016.
