Electricity and gas licences and exemptions
View licences for electricity and gas distributors, retailers and transmission services, and Victorian electricity generators. You can also view information on who is exempt from electricity licensing and how to apply for an exemption.
We review applications for electricity and gas licences. We can also revoke licences if electricity and gas suppliers don't align with the Energy Retail Code.
Some people or businesses who sell or supply electricity are exempt from our electricity licensing requirements. These people may need to register their exemption with us.
We sometimes ask licensed energy retailers and distributors to undertake compliance audits. When businesses undertake these audits, we ask them to select auditors from our pre-approved audit panel.
Anyone supplying or selling electricity in Victoria must hold an electricity licence granted by us, or be exempt from that requirement. Learn about how to prepare to register with us for an exemption.
