What we do

Western Power is a Western Australian State Government owned corporation. Our vision is to deliver on the changing energy needs of Western Australians, powered by community trust and the passion of our people. 

Western Power’s vast transmission and distribution network connects Western Australians to a wide range of both traditional and renewable energy sources to power a vibrant modern lifestyle. Although we have been delivering energy safely, reliably and efficiently for more than 70 years, our focus is always firmly on the future.

In a rapidly changing landscape, our customers’ energy needs are evolving, and we intend to keep them connected every step of the way. Whether it’s residents connecting their dream home, developers building a shopping complex or a stadium hosting a world class sporting event, we are there to deliver.

We are proud of our history and our people, and even prouder to be at the heart of Western Australia’s energy future.
