Electricity is produced by generators, distributed through powerlines by network operators and sold to consumers by retailers. The Western Australian Government owns three corporations with active roles in the electricity supply chain.
Privately-owned electricity generators supply almost half of the electricity in the South West electricity market as well as private mining, mineral processing and other operations.
The Economic Regulation Authority has a guide on how energy is supplied to your residence.
