As a result of National Competition Policy, on 1 July 1998 the Hydro Electric Commission (HEC), a government enterprise, was split into three separate entities, each with a discrete area of responsibility. The three entities are:
Hydro Tasmania is responsible for the generation of electricity in Tasmania with 27 hydro, one thermal and two diesel power stations and wind farms (source: http://www.hydro.com.au).
Transend Networks Pty Ltd owns and operates the electricity transmission system in Tasmania and is responsible for the transmission of electricity between power stations and the local distribution network (source: http://www.transend.com.au).
Aurora Energy is responsible for the distribution and retailing of electricity to the end user in Tasmania (source:http://www.auroraenergy.com.au).
