The State Government is confident households won’t be affected by the partial sale of Western Power.

Fifty one percent of the utility will be sold off by the 2018-19 financial year should the Liberals be re-elected, with the Government to retain ownership of the remaining 49 percent.

Premier Colin Barnett says power prices will continue to be set by the energy regulator.

He’s also confirmed a jobs guarantee will form part of the sale conditions.

He spoke with Adam Shand.
