What we do

Western Power is a Western Australian State Government owned corporation responsible for building, maintaining and operating an electricity network that connects our 2.3 million customers to traditional and renewable energy sources, delivering an essential service to our community.

We’re at the forefront of the energy industry in leveraging new technologies, including integrating microgrid and battery storage solutions. We’re planning the grid of the future that’s leading the way to a cleaner, brighter and more resilient energy supply for the next generation.

For more than 70 years, we’ve been providing West Australians with safe, reliable and efficient energy. Our vast transmission and distribution network, and the people behind it, seamlessly connect our homes, businesses and essential community infrastructure to an increasingly renewable energy mix, supercharging our vibrant West Australian lifestyle.
