Power and lighting
This page contains information on streetlights, reporting of faulty streetlights and underground power in the City of Subiaco
The provision of street lighting is an important community service undertaken by the city and Western Power.
Subiaco streetlights are recognisably decorative and mounted on coloured (powder-coated) metal poles with light fittings designed to fit in with the unique ambience of our city. The remainder of lighting poles within the city are owned and maintained by Western Power and are typically mounted on plain galvanized metal poles or on the older style wooden poles. Faults with Western Power lights should be reported directly to Western Power on 1800 622 008 or follow the link below.
