Western Power is a Western Australian State Government owned corporation with the purpose of connecting people with electricity in a way that is safe, reliable and affordable. We build, maintain and operate the electricity network in the south west corner of Western Australia. Western Power is governed by an independent Board and reports to the Western Australian Minister for Energy as the ownera€™s representative. We operate depots and offices throughout the SWIS region including our head office in Wellington Street, Perth. Even though the price paid by electricity consumers has risen significantly since 2009, this price is still well below the cost of supply.
As the only electricity transmission and distribution utility within our region, Western Power is a natural monopoly. In 2015 the Minister for Energy announced an energy market review to reform the industry in order to improve customer experience and reduce costs. Electricity supply will be boosted by 60 megawatts thanks to a implementation agreement for the Ngonye Falls Hydro Electric Scheme signed between Western Power Company Ltd and the Ministry of Energy and Water Development today (December 8, 2015). With the signing of the agreement Western Power Company, a Zambian company, is a step closer to starting construction on the US$200 million project – the single largest private investment in Western Province. The Permanent Secretary highlighted the importance and need for more of such concerted efforts between the Zambian private sector and government to develop infrastructure and invest in alternative and sustainable energy sources that will drive industrial, economic and social development in the country. The power station is a run-of-river hydroelectric plant that will have an installed capacity of around 60MW and produce at least 300GWh per year of zero-carbon, renewable baseload electricity.
The project will involve the construction of a barrage across part of the river above the falls which will direct water into a 3km canal to a power house with two turbines and generators.
The development is welcome in light of the country’s power deficit that has resulted in power rationing across the country. The company expects the station will not only be able to supply Southern and Western Zambia but also to generate foreign exchange revenue through export of surplus power throughout the region. SCOTTISH Hydro Electric issued an apology to customers after 18,000 homes lost electricity at around 10.30 this morning.


AROUND 18,000 properties were left without electricity after a power cut thought to have been caused by a lightning strike. Scottish Hydro Electric customers in the Western Isles were hit by a loss of electricity at 10.30am this morning.
The company used generators to restore power to most properties by lunchtime, apart from a small pocket on Harris. Around 270 properties on Skye were also hit by a power cut at around 4.20am in a separate incident, also thought to have been caused by lightning.
FORECASTERS say wind, rain and snow showers will last throughout the weekend just as shoppers make their last surges on to the high streets. THE Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has issued warnings of gales and flooding for most parts of the country today. Western Power Distribution may make up to 800 of its workers redundant according to trade union, Unison.
Western Power Distribution are based in Bristol and are part of PPL which also owns Central Networks having just purchased it 2 months ago.
The administrative changes, along with compulsory and voluntary redundancies, are expected to be introduced over the next 3 months. The Western Power Network forms the vast majority of the South West Interconnected Network (SWIN), which together with all of the electricity generators, comprises the South West Interconnected System (SWIS).
Unlike all other major urban areas of Australia which are covered by a series of interconnected networks known as the National Electricity Market (NEM), the SWIN is an isolated, self-contained network. The full cost to supply electricity to consumers within the SWIS is made up of a number of different elements including generation, transmission, distribution and retail.
In place of competition to bring about economic efficiency, the Economic Regulation Authority (ERA) currently oversees our economic performance. One decision made is to move from state-based to national regulation under the Australian Energy Regulator (AER).
Western Power Company is a Zambian independent power producer (IPP) developing the Ngonye Falls hydroelectric power station along the Zambezi River at Ngonye Falls in the Senanga and Sioma Districts of Western Province.


The Ngonye Falls Power Station will be the first hydropower station to be developed in Western Province,” said Brigadier General Chola, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Energy and Water Development. The power produced by the plant will be enough to provide basic electricity needs including lighting, refrigeration and television for up to 350,000 Zambian households,” explained Mr Fleming, the Western Power Company Technical Director. Electricity will be carried by high voltage transmission lines to the ZESCO national grid system at Sesheke where it will be available to serve demand in Western Province and across Zambia.
It is due to the continued support and efforts of all the involved stakeholders and financiers that this project will be a success,” added Mr Tom Younger the Managing Director of Western Power Company.
The project will not only contribute to boosting the power generation and supply capacity of the country but activities surrounding the hydropower plant will foster development and employment at Ngonye Falls and Western Province. The restructuring is in order to correctly absorb the two businesses into the overall company without duplication of systems or functions. This means that the electricity needs of consumers within the SWIS must at all times be delivered by the SWIS itself without any outside support or back up.
Consumers pay only a proportion of this cost with the balance provided as a subsidy by the State Government. The basis for this oversight is the Access Arrangement which is our regulatory contract agreed with the ERA for a given period. Western Power is currently preparing its first regulatory submission to the AER for the four year period commencing 1 July 2018. Because the project is run-of-river and therefore does not involve the construction of a large reservoir it is considered to be extremely environmentally friendly and has a beneficial social impact on the people of Sioma and Western Province.
