Our publicly-owned energy utilities are essential to all West Australians.
Right now, energy sector workers keep the lights on and the electricity flowing so other essential services – like health and education – can care for our community. They power households and allow industry to operate and create jobs.
In times of crisis, we are all reminded of how important our publicly-owned energy utilities are because they focus on supplying reliable power to West Australians, instead of returning profits to shareholders.
West Australians overwhelmingly rejected the privatisation of Western Power at the 2017 State Election.
It was the right decision.
Let’s support our public sector energy sector workers during the current crisis and use our power to keep our electricity system in public hands.
