More electrification of our lives means we need a more robust network to deliver that electricity to our community.
Making the switch from overhead to underground
As we move towards a cleaner energy future with greater generation of electricity from renewable sources, there is a comparable growing demand for a reliable and safe power supply. More electrification of our lives means we need a more robust network to deliver that electricity to our community. Western Power is transforming the grid to enable industry and the community to achieve their decarbonisation goals. One important part of this is the continued roll out of underground power.
