Thousands of homes in Perth’s north lose power following damning Western Power report

More than 4000 homes across Perth’s northern suburbs lost electricity on Thursday night, only a day after Western Power was slammed by the State Government for mass Christmas blackouts.

Residents in the Clarkson and Kinross area have been told they will have to wait until at least 9pm on Thursday for their electricity to be restored.

An unknown cause cut power to 4088 homes.

Energy Minister Bill Johnston on Wednesday ordered Western Power to improve its planning, forecasting, transparency and operational response to extreme events following an inquiry into the Christmas blackouts that affected 107,000 households in a report handed to WA’s Parliament.
