NSW is the largest electricity market in Australia with roughly 3 million residential customers and 350,000 business customers. There are three electricity networks across the state, all of which are currently owned by NSW Government business enterprises: Ausgrid (formerly EnergyAustralia), Endeavour Energy (formerly Integral Energy) and Essential Energy (formerly Country Energy). The retail parts of each of these businesses were sold off to Origin Energy (acquired Country Energy and Integral Energy) and TRUenergy (acquired Energy Australia) as part of the NSW Government's privatisation process in 2011/12.
As at May 2013 there were thirteen main retail power companies selling electricity to households in NSW:

As at November 2012, there were nine main energy retailer brands selling electricity to households in south-east Queensland:

These distributors own and maintain the electricity networks in different geographical areas.
Victoria is the only state in Australia that has a fully deregulated retail energy market, meaning that power companies are able to set their own retail prices.
