As part of a new process, Western Power has commenced consultation with local governments across the South West Interconnected System (SWIS) to gather feedback to inform the review of our Public Lighting Strategy (PLS).

We operate and maintain around 280,000 streetlights on behalf of local governments across the South-West Interconnected System (SWIS). The PLS outlines how we manage public lighting assets to provide the community with a safe, reliable and affordable service and meet our regulatory obligations. 

Through the consultation process, local governments will have the opportunity to share their own strategic streetlight objectives and outcomes, which will inform the PLS. Interested local governments will also be invited to participate in further in-depth consultation which will take place in May.

Once the consultation process is complete, summary findings will be shared with local governments ahead of a first version of the PLS being published on 30 June 2024. Additional feedback will be incorporated into future versions.

Collaboration and consultation with local governments is essential in helping us deliver this service for the community.

The PLS will continue to evolve with consultation undertaken annually to ensure it remains fit-for-purpose and aligned to local government and community requirements.
