Project overview

Currently, the overhead and underground electricity infrastructure in these communities isn’t owned or operated by Horizon Power. This project transfers ownership and responsibility to us, so we can provide reliable, affordable power to our state’s remotest communities. It includes upgrades to existing infrastructure where required.

Standardising operations, supply and maintenance, will deliver a higher level of customer service to customers and ensure everyone receives utility-standard operations and consumer protections, regardless of where they live.

    What's happening now

    Local contracts

    We’re pleased to announce that we’ve awarded local contractors ARC Electrical, DJ Rivers Electrical and Greenhills Electrical the electrical services contracts for this exciting project.

    Greenhills Electrical, based in Kalgoorlie, will service the communities located around the Goldfields Esperance region, and Kimberley locals ARC Electrical and DJ Rivers Electrical will look after our Kimberley communities.

    What's happening now

    Works begin

    Pre-works and site inspections will kick off in the first week of March in Mud Springs, Emu Creek, Munthanmarr and Bell Springs, all in the East Kimberley.

    Our contracted electricians will inspect house meter panels and remedy any minor electrical issues so they can issue safety certificates.
