What more do I need to know about Residential Supply Upgrades?

  • Wherever possible we will provide an underground connection via a green dome
  • There are some physical clearances that are required between the electricity network and your equipment
  • If your property will have multiple points of supply, you will need to comply with 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
  • You will need an electrical contractor to install your meter and terminate your consumer mains
  • If your consumer mains are larger than 35mm2, we will need to terminate them for you instead
  • 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 unsure about where a substation site can go please submit a feasibility study and one of our consultant engineers will help you you find a solution

 

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 unsure about where a substation site can go please submit a feasibility study and one of our consultant engineers will help you you find a solution
  • When making decisions about a substation site, please read the Western Power Distribution Substation Manual
  • If you would like to apply for a non-compliant site please submit a feasibility study and one of our consultant engineers will let you know if it can be used
  • If your supply will be greater than 100A your electrical contractor will provide the appropriate sized current transformers
