Our History

Bluewaters Power prides itself on developing a low cost electricity generating portfolio for the benefit of W.A.

Bluewaters Power has progressed substantially following the deregulation of the Western Australian energy sector in 1997. The Government’s reforms opened the energy market to private enterprise, creating an opportunity for private investors to participate in the energy sector.
