Energy Minister Bill Johnston today officially opened Western Power's $15 million Pinjarra depot on Munday Avenue.

The new depot combines the Mandurah and Waroona depots, and will enhance the co-ordination and service reach for customers in the Peel region. 

The purpose-built facility will provide enhanced customer response times and improve employee safety for its 60 staff. 

One of the depot's impressive features includes a large-scale original artwork by Bindjareb elder Gloria Kearing, which depicts native frogs and western long-necked tortoises.

Part of Western Power's depot modernisation program, the Pinjarra depot will help meet the growing needs of its customers' energy needs in the region.
