What more do I need to know?

We will normally service new connections of this nature with a pillar. The pillar location will need to meet clearance requirements.

Substation site

  • Depending on your supply requirements you may need to provide space for a substation site. We will notify you if this is the case. If you are readily able to provide a substation site, your project will continue. If you cannot, then a feasibility study will gain you access to one of our consultant engineers to assist you in finding a solution.
  • When you’re considering your substation site, please read the Western Power Distribution Substation Manual. If you would like to apply for a non-compliant site it will need to be approved. You can do this in consultation with our consultant engineers via a  feasibility study.
  • The final specifications for the substation requirements will be determined when our engineers create your design. This means that the substation site you provide may be subject to change.
  • We will install the substation as part of the construction works; however you will need to prepare the site in advance. Some assistance in this can be found in the Western Australian Distribution Connection Manual.
  • If your supply will be greater than 100A your electrical contractor will provide the appropriate sized current transformers.
  • Your electrical contractor will need to complete the installation of direct metering.
  • We will be responsible for terminating the consumer mains into the pillar, kiosk or transformer.
  • If your property will have multiple points of supply, check the compliance information from the West Australian Electrical Requirements. In some cases non-compliant points of supply might still be viable - if you would like to pursue this, consider a feasibility study.
