Why should property owners pay for Western Power to get new infrastructure?

Underground power means property owners will gain greatly enhanced streetscapes, more reliable power, brighter and safer streetlights, demonstrated increased property value and a safer public environment. It costs Western Power more to install the underground network than it would to continue maintaining the existing overhead network into the future. However, because of the shared funding arrangements that reflect benefits gained by property owners, the State Government and Western Power, underground power can be a positive outcome for all parties.
