Improving Access to Western Power’s network
Energy Policy WA (formally the Public Utilities Office) will be implementing a framework of constrained access to Western Power’s network in the SWIS. Implementing constrained access will require changes to the network connections and access regime applying to Western Power, as well as changes to Wholesale Electricity Market arrangements (including the Reserve Capacity Mechanism). AEMO intends to support Energy Policy WA to implement the reforms. Further information is available on Energy Policy WA’s website.
