Telecommunication site sharing

To support our electricity network Western Power operates communication sites throughout the South West of Western Australia, from Kalbarri to Kalgoorlie and down to Ravensthorpe.  

These communications sites are accessible to other parties under license for a fee, we call this service Telecommunications Site Sharing (Co-Siting).

Co-siting allows other companies or organisations to install their radio telecommunication assets on our infrastructure, such as a communication tower or substation building, and take advantage of our extensive network of assets.

Telecommunication Site Sharing Enquiry

If you would like to take advantage of our extensive network of sites, please email your enquiry to
co-siting@westernpower.com.au.
