Small Aboriginal communities located near regional and remote towns are generally connected to the nearest town power supply. Under the Town Reserves Regularisation Project (TRRP), Horizon Power is funded by the Department of Housing to upgrade electricity infrastructure to a standard in line with that in mainstream towns. This infrastructure upgrade is known as 'regularisation'.
After regularisation, electricity generation, transmission and distribution, and retail services are delivered to Horizon Power standards.
Customers in Aboriginal communities may have the option to receive a power bill or have power supplied through a pre-payment meter. Many customers opt for a pre-payment in preference to power bills because customers find the meters allow them to pay for power as they use it, and the meters provide better visibility of power use and costs.
