Power quality to be improved in remote Aboriginal communities

THREE remote Aboriginal communities in the West Kimberley region of WA will benefit from improved services through upgrades to power supplies under a project that is being delivered by Horizon Power and the Department of Housing. Construction work will begin in the town-based communities of Looma, Mowanjum and Bayulu later this year, under phase three of the Town Reserves Regularisation Project (TRRP). Horizon Power stated that it had completed the necessary audits and designs for the electricity networks in Looma and Mowanjum, remote communities near Broome and Derby. Under phase one and two of the TRRP, Horizon Power carried out auditing, upgraded networks and internal house wiring in 25 town-based communities. In the community of Bayulu, near Fitzroy Crossing, Horizon Power has designed the upgrade of the electricity network and will oversee the project in collaboration with the Department of Housing, which will continue to undertake the network upgrade and internal house wiring work. “Once the work is completed, the residents will become Horizon Power customers, which means they will be eligible for rebates and concessions for energy for the first time,” Horizon Power stated. The company currently delivers education about the work, electrical safety and energy efficiency as part of its close engagement with residents of Aboriginal communities. “Electricity is an essential service that is critical for the delivery of healthcare and nutrition in remote communities,” it stated. The company will soon issue tenders for the work on phase three of the project, which is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2012.Horizon Power is a WA state-owned  electricity provider that provides power to more than 100,000 residents and 9000 businesses.
