A 65 year old underground zone substation owned by CitiPower, takes supply from the Richmond Terminal Station to ultimately supply individual distribution substations located in nearby city blocks.
Melbourne was one of the first places in the world to have a public electricity supply, making Russell Place Substation one of the oldest substations in the world still operating today.
Substation 'J' was originally built to distribute electricity from the adjacent Spencer Street Power Station, and the control room has been left largely untouched. Both substations continue to provide power to Melbourne's CBD today.
