I already have underground power, do I still pay for the project?

State Underground Power Program (SUPP) and Retrospective Undergrounding Projects (RUPP)

Yes. Under these projects you are required to contribute to the network infrastructure costs and your consumer mains connection. If you have underground consumer mains already connected you’ll receive a discount from your  Local Government Authority (LGA).

Network Renewal Undergrounding Pilot Program (NRUPP)

No. Western Power covers the entire infrastructure costs up to the pillar, so if you have underground power connected to a pillar you won’t have to pay anything.
