Large scale relocation or removal

Changes to application and design fees

On 16 August 2019, we'll introduce a revised fee structure that includes an upfront application fee, new designs fees, and revised information/conformance services fees for all distribution customer projects. Find out more.

Use this service if you want us to relocate or permanently remove large portions of equipment not covered by smaller services.

How long will it take?

  • 7 weeks to provide you with a quote
  • 10 weeks to remove or relocate once payment is received

What more do I need to know?

  • This service covers a wide range of possibilities, if you are unsure about how to proceed, please consider beginning with a feasibility study
  • There are some physical clearances that are required between the electricity network and your equipment
  • If you want to relocate Western Power equipment onto a neighbour’s property you will need to include their written approval with your application. If there are third party assets (e.g. telecommunication equipment) on a pole flagged for relocation or removal, we will organise for them to be relocated; these costs will appear in your quote
  • We no longer install new overhead assets in metropolitan/built up areas. If your work requires the relocation of overhead assets, they will need to go underground
  • If your work will result in other customers' electricity supplies being relocated underground, you will need to negotiate suitable pillar locations and engage an electrical contractor to complete the connection
  • If your consumer mains are larger than 35mm2, we will need to terminate them for you instead
