The $16 million energy hub will be created to enhance safety for employees, improve operations and future-proof electricity supply for the region. Design for the facility include single-flow traffic, the separation of heavy and light vehicles, and reduced space between forklifts and employees. It will also include charging ports for electric vehicles in the visitor car park and inside the building.
The facility will replace Western Power’s ageing existing facility on the same site, and construction is expected to commence in May 2021. The new facility and assets contained within it are expected to meet the energy needs of the community in the Great Southern Region1.
