The Wholesale Electricity Market

Electricity retailers buy power from electricity generators and pay Western Power a fee for transporting that electricity through their network.  The Wholesale Electricity Market (WEM) controls the supply and trading of wholesale electricity between retailers and generators.

The WEM is operated by the Australian Energy Market Operator

Refer to the Wholesale Electricity Market website for an overview on how the market operates.
