The Network capacity mapping tool (NCMT) provides you with visualisation of our network capacity. It’s primary objective is to give users insight into our forward looking network capacity based on all planned network changes and growth plans. This enables the customer to view Western Power’s current and proposed electrical network and understand how this may affect their development plans and investment options.
In July 2017 we modified the mapping tool to give you more flexibility and functionality. The modifications include:

Hint: When selecting the ‘Forecast Remaining Capacity Year’ layers from the ‘Layers List’ it is recommended that only one layer be selected at a time. Selecting more than one of these layers at a time my cause erroneous interpretations of the presented information.
Hint: When selecting layers to view from the ‘Layer List’ it is important to remember that the above layer will overlay the below layer. This is particularly important when viewing layers imported from external sources that have low transparency or opaque features. In this case, if the imported layer is selected and placed above the other selected layers (e.g. the Western Power layers) then the low transparency or opaque feature in the above layer may overlay (i.e. block from view) information in the below layer.
