Consultation

Public consultation is an important part of transparent decision making.

 

Kalgoorlie power requirements

We’re coming to Kalgoorlie at the end of November to listen to customers and work together on enhancing the network.

If you’re in the process of planning a major mining load, need extra network capacity, have a generation solution to provide back-up in the region or other network-related ideas, we want to hear from you.

Western Power is always seeking better ways to service our customers and understand their future power requirements.

The Goldfields mining sector is one of the most important parts of our state, and our network, and we need your input as major customers, generators and potential project partners.

Our customers are at the centre of everything we do when providing a safe, reliable and efficient connection to electricity. 

With your help, it’s ON!

  • Chamber of Minerals and Energy
  • 115 Egan Street, Kalgoorlie
