We can provide media comments related to our following functions:

  • Regulating monopoly aspects of Western Australia’s gas, electricity and rail industries;
  • Administering the licensing schemes for Western Australia’s gas, electricity and water services;
  • Monitoring the wholesale electricity market (where electricity generators and retailers can buy and sell electricity) to ensure that companies are not manipulating prices; and
  • Conducting inquiries into matters referred to us by the State Government. Past inquiries include Western Australian prisons (2015), microeconomic reform (2014), which included recommendations on public infrastructure, divestment of Government Assets, reducing the cost of complying with regulation, review of State taxes and removing barriers to competition.
