Pricing

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

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

These electricity tariffs continue to be significantly lower than the average cost to supply as they are heavily subsidised by the State Government. Each customer of Horizon Power receives a subsidy of $4,000 a year from the State Government on average.

The most common tariff for residential customers is A2. This tariff is available to private dwellings (houses, home units, flats, apartments, permanent caravan park residents etc.) and offers the same flat rate regardless of when and which time of day electricity is used.

If you use electricity partly for residential and partly for business purposes, you will be on the K2 tariff. Some examples include:

  • commercial, industrial or general properties with a caretaker's residence attached, including churches, schools, shops, factories, police stations and post offices;
  • 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.
