WA electricity customers to benefit from reforms

Western Australian electricity consumers will be the beneficiaries of new energy choices and national regulation of electricity networks announced by the Western Australian Government today.

The Energy Networks Association (ENA) has welcomed the Electricity Market Review Options Paper and the response from the Western Australian Government.

The Government’s announcement is good news for customers in Western Australia who will benefit from nationally consistent economic regulation of networks and frameworks supporting innovation in customer services, ENA CEO John Bradley said.

“Retail competition will see retailers competing on the price and service benefits they can offer consumers and we are likely to see more rewarding tariff structures for customers who reduce peak demand,” Mr Bradley said.
