Network demand monitor

What’s happening on the network right now? Our live energy monitor shows the real-time total electricity usage on our network. It’s a great way to learn more about when peak demand occurs.

Peak demand is when electricity usage on the network is at its highest, usually between 4pm and 8pm. In the long term it can lead to power outages and electricity price rises. If we reduce our peak demand at home and at work, everybody benefits.

Our live demand monitor is updated every 30 minutes, so be sure to continually refresh your screen to see the latest information.

Energex’s innovative PeakSmart technologies are one of the ways we can all help manage demand. Learn more about PeakSmart events – the adjustments we make on days when the needle is in the red zone.
