How our energy needs will be met in the future has been laid out by the Government’s release of its Whole of System Plan (WoSP).
From an energy viewpoint, Western Australia is a big place, with more than 2.3 million customers - homes and businesses - needing power to run their lights and lives every day.
Western Power manages the South West Interconnected Grid System (SWIS), which accounts for the electricity network from Kalbarri in the north inland to Kalgoorlie to Esperance on the south-coast.
Although Western Power is the network Distribution System Operator, we work with many others in the energy industry, including the government, power generators and other network providers like Horizon.
Together, as new technologies have created new opportunities for the way energy is created and managed, we have been transforming towards a brighter energy future.
How the SWIS will operate in the future has been laid out in the State Government’s Whole of System Plan (WoSP).
