Western Power Corporation (WPC), owned by the Government of Western Australia, was Western Australia's major electricity supplier from 1995 through 2006.

It was formed in 1995 when the monopoly electricity and gas supplier, the State Energy Commission of Western Australia, was disaggregated into separate suppliers for gas (AlintaGas), and for electricity (WPC). [1]

In 2006, WPC was disaggregated into Western Power, Synergy, Horizon Power and Verve Energy.
