The City’s vision is to have overhead power lines placed underground throughout the entire City and we are well underway to achieving this goal with works on three Round Six project areas having commenced.
The State Underground Power Program (SUPP) replaces overhead power lines with underground power infrastructure. The Program is a partnership between the State Government, Western Power and local government and is administered by Energy Policy WA (formerly known as the Public Utilities Office).
In January 2017, it was announced that funding had been secured for three more City of South Perth projects - Manning, Collier and South Perth.
The City will monitor future funding rounds of the SUPP with a view to nominate other areas within the City for the program including Kensington.
Property owners in the South Perth and Hurlingham area will be able to find out more about the City's next underground power project at a Community Information Session on Wednesday 25 May 2022.
The Western Power State Underground Power Project (SUPP) contractor Genus will stop work on site for the Christmas break from Tuesday 21 December 2021 until Wednesday 5 January 2022.
