SECWA has relocated its 'Energy Centre' from Centreways Arcade to the ground floor of its building at 363 Wellington Street.
Fuel and Energy Minister Geoff Gallop officially opened the new advisory facility today and said its services would be many and varied.
"Trained staff at the Energy Centre will provide free and impartial advice on the purchase of energy efficient appliances," Dr Gallop said.
"In this way the features of water heating units, stoves, washing machines, refrigerators and the like can be compared, and you can also be fully informed about energy costs, savings and energy management.
"Energy Centre staff take part in training programs with the retail appliance industry and maintain close contact with home builders, architects, specifiers and industry associations. In others words, they are completely up to date with the latest industry developments."
Dr Gallop said appliance manufacturers had expressed keen interest in using the Centre for trade and public product releases.
SECWA would conduct cooking demonstrations over the next six months and the public would be invited to attend.
The Energy Centre's new location was adjacent to SECWA's Customer Services Centre for improved customer convenience.
More than 35,000 people had visited the Centre each year at its previous location and it was expected that the facility would be equally popular at its new address.
Written and telephone inquiries (telephone 326 4911) would also be promptly dealt with.
