If you are having trouble paying your bill, talk to us. Synergy has programs and payment options that can assist you with managing your electricity bills. 

This page explains our various tariffs, rates and charges relating to power supply for home and business. You will also find information that can help you reduce your energy use.

Please note, prices are subject to change from time to time and other fees and charges may apply.

Price increase information

Electricity prices are increasing on 1 July 2013 because of the increase in the carbon charge and the increase in electricity tariffs announced by the State Government.

By reducing your energy use you can help to lower your electricity bills and manage increased costs.

Managing the impact of the price increase

If you have a residential account and you hold a valid concession card you may be eligible for a rebate off your bill. Centrelink, The Department of Veteran Affairs and the Western Australian Office for Senior’s Interests and Carers issue eligible concession cards. Find out if you may be eligible for a rebate

Home Business Plan (K1) tariff

Home Business Plan (K1) tariff is a combined tariff if you power partly for home, and partly for business purposes. The daily supply charge of the Home Business Plan tariff is the same as the supply charge of the Home Plan (A1) tariff. The first 20kWh of consumption each day, or around 610kWh per month, is also charged at the Home Plan rate.

The home consumption allowance is set at 20kWh per day, because it is a typical amount used by home users. Any power you use above 20kWh per day is charged at the same rate as the Business Plan (L1) tariff.

Some examples that could make you eligible for the Home Business Plan tariff include:

  • Farming properties where power for both the home and other farm facilities, such as a shearing shed, irrigation pump or cold storage room, is supplied through a single metered supply point.
  • Commercial, industrial or general properties with a caretaker's home attached; including churches, schools, shops, factories, police stations and post offices.
  • Private homes where a room or suite of rooms is used for business purposes, such as a doctor's surgery, child-minding centre or real estate office.

Rebates available to customers on the Home Plan (A1) tariff are not available to customers applying for the Home Business Plan (K1) tariff.
