Our Projects

September 2019

In July 2014, Westpower submitted an application for concessions from the Minister of Conservation to enable the proposed scheme to progress. In September 2016, DOC publicly notified its intention to grant a lease, licence and easement concession and a public hearing was held in early December 2016. 

On 28 August, a decision to decline the application was announced by David Parker, the Minister for the Environment. Westpower is considering its response to this decision.

Westpower Limited (Westpower) is a 100% West Coast community owned company with its head office in Greymouth. The shares in the company are held by the West Coast Electric Power Trust on behalf of the electors of the district. We take great pride in ensuring we build and maintain a network which will provide the reliable delivery of electricity to our business and domestic customers.
