WA based Energy Brokerage & Network Design Consultancy
We have strong relationships with the Western
Australian Energy Market (WEM) Energy Retailers, as well as with Western Power the
state-owned Electricity Operator. We have no alliance or preferred retailer
relationships, and we act impartially when we present our analysis and procurement
proposal to clients.
ECWA was started by Carlo Scamuffo in 2015. Carlo is a registered electrician. He
initially undertook Network Design and Power Upgrade projects for clients and project
managed these with Western Power.
A simple question from one of his clients, "Can you help me get better electricity rates?"
inspired Carlo to assist all of his clients to achieve more competitive electricity and gas
rates and so the Energy Procurement division was born.

Managing Director and Founder
Carlo is a registered electrician by trade and holds a A-grade Licence and Certificate of Electrical Installation and Electro-technology. In addition to being an electrician for over 35 years, Carlo was also a Director of Taddei Orchards for 25 years. In this role, Carlo managed the day to day running of the citrus farm and all electrical upgrades.
In early 2015 Carlo assisted several growers, with whom he has a strong affinity and relationship, with their electrical upgrades. This led to the birth of ECWA. Network Design and Power Upgrades are the bread and butter of the business and has become integral to the Energy Procurement. Today, both divisions work very closely together.
