Western Power offsets revenue to reduce fees

July 21, 2019

From 1 July 2019, all residential and commercial applications to Western Power for new connections or connection upgrades may be eligible to receive a reduced cost on their connection.

Western Power can now offset their revenue against the connection cost. The expected power consumption for the property (up to a 15-year period where it can be proven the site will be occupied and electricity will be consumed from the network) can be used to reduce up front cost of the connection.

The cost of network infrastructure required for new connections will now also be shared by customers based on the requested capacity and not whether the current network will be expanded as a result of the work.

Head to the Western Power website for more information.
