The electricity distribution network that carries electricity to around 850,000 customers is operated and maintained by SA Power Networks (SAPN), which is a privately owned company.

If there is a blackout/power failure, SAPN is usually responsible for responding to the issue and restoring the electricity supply.

The state government is not responsible for the distribution network.
