Western Power design and construct
Project requests for Western Power designed and constructed streetlights follow a design and quotation process.
This option is open for an unlimited number of streetlights in either underground or overhead network configurations.
Note: Where lights need to be removed or installed in an overhead system, Western Power design and construct is the only option available. Applications for projects of this type would be most appropriate in an existing overhead distribution area where the customer requests light fittings be attached to existing wooden poles.
How to apply
To request the installation or modification of streetlights in your shire, town or city, an Application for unmetered supply form (PDF 139kb) must be submitted.
Part A on page three of the application form must be completed and accompanied by a site plan. The site plan should be a scaled map showing the position, size and type of streetlights, with street names and site address clearly labelled. In submitting the site plan, the customer accepts responsibility for the location of the lights.
Western Power will send you an acknowledgement letter within 10 working days of receiving your application. If you do not receive a written acknowledgement within this timeframe, please call our Customer Service Centre on 13 10 87.
When completing the application please refer to Australian Standard 1158 - lighting for roads and public spaces and include with your site plan:
- number of lights required
- wattage (refer to Australian Standard 1158 for relevant categories)
- equipment list specifying required light fittings
