Powercor is using data to innovate at scale and support bushfire mitigation plans: find out how

Powercor is Australia's leading rural electricity distribution network recognised for high reliability, efficiency and low costs. As part of a group of networks servicing over 1.8 million residential and commercial customers across Victoria, Powercor supplies a 150,000 kilometre square area across the western suburbs of Melbourne and western Victoria.

Powercor takes the safety of the communities we service and the security of electricity supplies seriously. Vegetation management and clearing is important for keeping the electricity supply to residences and businesses reliable and preventing bushfires. Clearing vegetation to minimise these risks involves inspecting over 95,000 km of powerlines annually, at a great financial cost.
