Our history

Although ActewAGL was set up in October 2000, we've been supplying reliable essential services to Canberra and the region for much longer.

The journey began in 1915 with the Kingston Power House, which supplied electricity for Canberra's water supply at the Cotter Dam. Over the years, we've contributed to the building of the capital and have grown and changed with the needs of the city.
