Connection Schemes

The Service Apparatus Connection and Contractor Connect Schemes allow accredited private electrical contractors to connect new consumer electrical installations to Western Power's network. WA Electrical Inspectors manage these schemes on behalf of Western Power.

Service Apparatus Connection Scheme (SACS)

The Service Apparatus Connection Scheme authorises accredited electrical contractors to install kWh meters and terminate consumer mains into energised Western Power pillars. After testing and recording the test results on the SACS test form, installations must be left de-energised and tagged out of service.

The scheme is limited to the connection of single direct wired metering installations not exceeding 100 amperes and includes distributed master metering.

Contractor Connection Scheme (CCS)

Contractor Connect permits authorised contractors to install, test and energise new electrical installations. Following satisfactory testing and checking of the work, the installation may be left energised.

2 levels of accreditation (full and restricted) is available to eligible electrical contractors.

How to apply

Further information regarding SACS and CCS including scheme rules and application forms are available from Western Power's website.
