Following the disaggregation of the New South Wales Electricity Commission (trading as Pacific Power), TransGrid was formed as a statutory authority in 1995, under NSW Electricity Transmission Authority Act of 1994. TransGrid became corporatised in 1998 under NSW State Owned Corporations Act of 1989. Now, the state-owned corporation owns and manages one of the largest high-voltage electricity transmission networks in Australia, connecting generators, distributors and major end users in NSW and the ACT.
