AlintaGas powering ahead

The energy efficiency of co-generation is matched by its environmental performance. Greenhouse gas emissions will be up to one-third lower than the most efficient gas combined cycle plants.

Our goal is to have the first of these plants operational in late 2004 and for the first time provide WA consumers with a full-scale viable alternative to Western Power.

Alinta is now actively pursuing customers to commit to our electricity supply offerings. The challenges are significant as we face the barriers to entry presented by our competitors. It is critical that an environment is created in WA that allows for competition, if consumers are to realise the promise of lower electricity prices.

The Electricity Reform Task Force recommendations go a long way towards establishing a level playing field and are crucial to creating a more competitive WA electricity market.

We have been keen to see reform in this market for some time. We view the disaggregation of Western Power and the creation of new wholesale electricity market trading arrangements as being the fundamental step towards reforming this market for the benefit of West Australians.

Alinta has been a strong supporter of the Government’s energy reform agenda. Overall we strongly support the recommendations made by the task force.

It is now critical for the Government to commit to putting the recommended reforms into practice as soon as possible.

The Government’s commitment to reform has provided the motivation for us to undertake this project – a project that will ultimately deliver cheaper and cleaner power to WA consumers and act as a catalyst for economic development in the State.
