Pricing

This section details the electricity pricing and charges applicable to regional Western Australian businesses.

The State Government sets the price of electricity (otherwise known as tariffs), that are listed on this page.

Small voluntary and charitable organisations are on the C2 Tariff.

You can apply for this tariff if in writing, providing evidence which clearly illustrates that the conditions set out in the Energy Operators (Regional Power Corporation) (Charges) By-Laws 2006 have been met. Examples include:

  • Community clubs, such as Apex, Rotary and Lions;
  • Youth groups, such as Scouts, Girls Brigade and YMCA;
  • Non-profit groups, such as the Arts Council, Amnesty International and St Vincent De Paul;
  • Non-profit accommodation, such as the Youth Crisis Centre; and
  • Fire/rescue groups, such as the Volunteer Fire Brigade and Sea Rescue.

Charitable or benevolent organisations providing residential accommodation are on the D2 tariff. 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.
