Western Power has a large program of work planned in the Albany area  until March 2020 to maintain infrastructure and ensure power reliability.

During this time more than 100 poles and 31.8km of overhead powerlines will be replaced. The work will be undertaken by Western Power crews and there will be several power outages scheduled. From October 2019 to March 2020 works will be concentrated in Kronkup, Elleker and Manypeaks.

In order to complete the work safely, the work needs to be carried out on de-energised lines. This means that power outages will be required and given the volume of work, unfortunately some customers will be impacted by multiple outages. All affected customers will be notified (letters and emails) of upcoming outages.
