We’re a team of people who, with our contractors, are responsible for keeping the lights on across 12,000 square kilometres of the East Coast.
We have a strong focus on sustainability. This includes installing a regionwide network of electric vehicle chargers; planning for new energy opportunities; and ensuring we can continue delivering a reliable service as the way people use electricity changes and grows.
In 2023 Firstgas Group (now Clarus) acquired Eastland Network from Eastland Group, with the transaction completed on 31 March 2023. Firstlight Network is part of Clarus, owned by Igneo Infrastructure Partners.
