Pricing

This section explains the electricity pricing and charges for regional Western Australian residents and businesses.

The State Government sets the price of electricity (otherwise known as tariffs), that are listed on this page. These tariffs are charged to residents and businesses across the State - in both Perth and regional Western Australia..

Most of our customers pay a tariff that is much lower than the actual cost of purchasing or generating, distributing and retailing electricity. The difference between the tariffs customers pay and the actual cost is subsidised by the State Government. The Government subsidy for FY2018-19 is $195 million or around $3,900 per customer connection.

  • For home
  • For business

The A2 tariff is the standard residential tariff applied to private dwellings (houses, home units, flats, apartments) used solely for residential purposes. It offers customers the same flat rate energy charge regardless of where they live and which time of the day electricity is used.

  • private residences in which a room or suite of rooms is used for commercial purposes, such as a doctor's surgery, child-minding centre or real estate office; and
  • farming properties where electricity for both the residence and other farm facilities, such as a shearing shed, irrigation pump or cold storage room is supplied through a single metered supply point.

The D2 tariff is applied to charitable or benevolent organisations providing residential accommodation. With charitable accommodation, the number of additional residences is determined by dividing the total number of beds by five and rounding up to the next whole number. Examples include;

  • Hostels for the aged, women's refuges and other emergency accommodation; and
  • Homes for the aged which have a hostel as well as self-contained units, supplied through one point of supply. Where the hostel is supplied separately from the units, the hostel is eligible for the D2 tariff and the units are eligible for the residential A2 tariff.

NWIS/Regional Caravan Parks

The State Government recognises that caravan parks in the North West Interconnected System (from Karratha to Port Hedland) and regional off-grid power systems may be disadvantaged if they are paying business tariffs higher than the residential tariff. As a result, Horizon Power has developed the Caravan Park Tariff Compensation Program. 

Please see below for more information about how the Scheme will affect you.
