What is the difference between an electrical retailer and distributor?

Energy distributors supply the electricity and gas to your property. In other words, they operate and maintain the energy infrastructure (power poles, substations etc). There are 5 energy distributors in Victoria, and who supplies your services is dependent on where you live.

 

Tip: It's the energy retailer that sells you your electricity and/or gas.
