Concessions and rebates

  • For home
  • For business

Horizon Power welcomes the announcement by the State Government that there will be an additional one-off boost payment of $305.25 for Horizon Power customers eligible for the Energy Assistance Program, which increases this to a total $610 per year EAP amount to reduce the economic impacts of COVID-19 for our customers experiencing financial hardship.

Horizon Power will apply the new EAP boost payment from 1 May 2020, effectively providing relief sooner to WA households. The EAP boost will assist eligible customers who are concession card holders and is extended to further include new eligible applicants until 30 September 2020.

For more information, check out our frequently asked questions below or learn about the Government’s Economic Relief packages.

You may also be eligible for concessions and rebates, including a payment under the Hardship Utilities Grant Scheme. To ensure we are keeping you connected, please let us know as early as possible if you expect any payment challenges.

You can update your concessions and rebates through My Account, the Horizon Power app, or by calling 1800 267 926.

The WA Government Energy Assistance Payment (WAEAP) provides an annual payment to assist customers with electricity costs. A person who holds an appropriate concession card may be eligible for the payment.

The WAEAP is normally passed on to customers as equal deductions split across customer bills for the year. For the ‘normal’ or ‘base’ WAEAP, this will continue. (This is currently set at $305.25 per annum)

The WA State Government is making an additional one-off WAEAP boost payment of $305.25 that will be applied as a lump sum to customers’ first bimonthly bills commencing 1 May 2020.

To be eligible for this one-off EAP boost payment of $305.25, customers will simply need to be an eligible concession card holder. The EAP boost will assist eligible customers who are concession card holders and is extended to further include new eligible applicants until 30 September 2020.

You'll need one of the following cards to qualify:

  • Centrelink Health Care Card
  • Centrelink Pensioner Concessions Card
  • Veteran Affairs Gold Card
  • Centrelink Commonwealth Seniors card
  • Veteran Affairs Commonwealth Seniors Card
  • Veteran Affairs Pensioner Concession Card

The easiest way is to see if you received a payment on your most recent bill. This will show up as a single credit line with the details of WAEAP. You can also view previous bills via the free Horizon Power app and My Account.

The EAP boost payment may leave some customers in credit, in which case that credit will be carried forward to their future bills. Customers will not be able to seek a “refund” of this surplus amount.

Horizon Power welcomes the announcement by the State Government that there will be a one-off account credit of $2,500 towards electricity costs, for eligible small business and charity groups, to help mitigate the economic distress that may be caused by COVID-19.

The payment will assist Western Australian small businesses and charities who are on an eligible tariff with Horizon Power as at 31st March 2020.

For more information, check out our frequently asked questions below or learn about the Government’s Economic Relief packages.

The WA Government has announced that they will provide electricity tariff assistance to eligible small business and charity groups on the C2, D2, K2, L2 and MyPower Business 3/ 5/ 7/ 10/ 15 tariffs, to assist them in mitigating the economic impacts of COVID-19. Eligible customers will receive a one-off payment as an account credit of $2,500 on 1 May 2020.

The account credit will appear on your bill as the “WA Small Business & Charity Group Stimulus”.

To be eligible for this account credit of $2,500, customers will need to be current customers on an eligible tariff (either C2, D2, K2, L2 and MyPower Business 3/ 5/ 7/ 10/ 15 tariffs,) as at 31 March 2020. Any customers that apply to open a new account or transfer to be on an eligible tariff after 31 March 2020, will not be eligible for the one-off payment.

Customers will need to be on one of the following tariffs as at 31 March 2020 to be eligible for the WA Government Small Business and Charity Group Electricity Tariff Credit:

  • C2
  • D2
  • K2
  • L2
  • MyPower Business 3
  • MyPower Business 5
  • MyPower Business 7
  • MyPower Business 10
  • MyPower Business 15

The account credit is expected to leave some eligible customers' accounts in credit. If this occurs, that credit will be carried forward and applied to future bills. Customers will not be able to seek a “refund” of this surplus amount related to the WA Government Small Business and Charity Group Electricity Tariff Credit if their account is in credit.

The credit of $2,500 will be automatically credited to eligible Horizon Power accounts on 1 May 2020. You will not need to complete any forms to apply.

Customers on a sub-meter will NOT be eligible for the payment. 

It is noted that some small businesses (e.g. shopping centre tenants) may not benefit from this measure as they do not have a direct billing relationship with Horizon Power.

These businesses are within embedded networks, where the property owner contracts with an electricity supplier and then allocates electricity costs to the tenants based on their tenancy agreements.
