Underground power

The Town, in conjunction with our Underground Power Advisory Group, are continually pursuing viable options for undergrounding power to remaining residences in Mosman Park.

  • The Town was successful in Stage 1 of the State Underground Power Program in 2003, which delivered underground power to 600 lots (between Johnston Street to the north and Lochee Street in the south).
  • The underground power works completed to date were primarily funded by the State Government and affected residents.
  • Council endorsed the establishment of the Town’s Underground Power Advisory Group.
  • Since the establishment of the Underground Power Advisory Group, the Town has been working with State Government entities and Western Power to seek more information about the upcoming funding process and selection criteria.
  • Following Council endorsement at the February 2021 Ordinary Council Meeting, the Town engaged an independent consultant to assist with the engagement of State entities and review of funding models for the Town and residents.

As at 13 December 2022

Key takeaways

  • Western Power has advised that the planned installation date for underground power in the Town is between 2030-2037
  • The Town’s Underground Power Advisory Group will continue to advocate for Mosman Park to be prioritised in the TUPP

Next Steps for Mosman Park

  • The Town’s Underground Power Advisory Group will continue to advocate for Mosman Park to be prioritised in the TUPP.
  • The Town will investigate options and associated costs of bringing the program forward.
  • The Town will receive guidance on timing and forecasted capital contribution by Western Power.
  • The Town will work on feasibility modelling to guide potential contributions by the Town and residents.
  • Community engagement will take place and include a review of funding models and the program.

These areas in Mosman Park – that do not have underground power yet – have two types of conductors (above ground wires).

MAP

1.     Low voltage conductors that are usually the lower wires above ground level.

2.     High voltage conductors that are installed higher than low voltage wires above ground.

 

As at 15 November 2022

Key takeaways

  • The State Government has launched the Targeted Underground Power Program (TUPP), which will allow up to 100,000 homes and businesses to transition from poles and wires to underground power
  • The Town’s Underground Power Advisory Group will continue to advocate for Mosman Park to be prioritised in the TUPP.

What is the TUPP program?

  • The TUPP program targets areas of the network with a higher density of assets that are due, or becoming due, for replacement. This approach means that Western Power will be able to contribute a higher proportion of total project costs, to ensure a fairer and more equitable program. The new program has State Government’s tiered funding based on socio-economic indicators to ensure all areas can benefit.
  • The first phase, a four-year program, will initially focus on the Town of Victoria Park, City of Vincent, City of Stirling, City of Bayswater, Town of Bassendean, City of Swan, Shire of Mundaring, City of Canning, City of Fremantle, City of Melville, City of Rockingham and City of Mandurah.

What is a key benefit of the new TUPP program?

  • The new program will increase Western Power’s capacity for undergrounding – from an average of 4,000 properties a year to 12,000 properties a year across the first four years.

Next Steps for Mosman Park

In addition to advocating for underground power in Mosman Park at the soonest available opportunity:

  • The Town will receive guidance on timing and forecasted capital contribution by Western Power and the State Government
  • The Town will work with its consultants on feasibility modelling to guide potential contributions by the Town and residents
  • Community engagement will take place and include a review of funding models and the program.
