Changes to Western Power fee structures

May 26, 2019

Western Power will introduce a new fee structure for all distribution customer projects that will take effect on 1 July 2019.

The revised fee structure will apply to distribution applications including:

  • New connections
  • Modifying a power supply
  • Isolations
  • Relocations
  • Unmetered Supplies; and
  • External design and construct

The new fees will include a non-refundable upfront application fee ($495.00), new designs fees (starting at $1320.00) and revised information/conformance services fees.  Design fees are non-refundable however, they will be deducted from the access offer if you decide to proceed with your project.

For residential overhead to underground conversions priced at $3400.00 or $4900.00, the $495.00 fee will be deducted from the invoice amount.

The applicant will pay the application fee and then receive an invoice later for the remainder.
