What is the National Electricity Grid ?

‘The Grid’ refers to the normal mains electricity network that supplies the vast majority of Australia with electricity. The electricity distributors are companies that own sections of the national grid and are responsible for grid maintenance and purchasing the electricity from power plants . Electricity retailers are companies that purchase electricity from the electricity distributors and on-sell it to the end user or customers, i.e. anyone living on-grid.
