Synergy Charity Accommodation Plan® (D1) tariff
Special rates for organisations that help house our community
If your organisation provides residential accommodation to those in need and with no commercial gain, this tariff may suit. Examples of eligible organisations are:
- Hostels for the aged
- Women's refuges and emergency accommodation
- Homes for the aged - including a hostel and self-contained units, supplied through one point of supply
- Where a hostel is supplied separately from units, only the hostel is eligible for the Charity Accommodation Plan (D1) tariff. The units are eligible for the residential Home Plan (A1) tariff.
Prices current as at 1 July 2023. Prices are subject to change from time to time and other fees and charges may also apply. Prices listed include GST unless otherwise stated. Synergy calculates its tariffs to four decimal places. Electricity is charged in cents per ‘unit’ unless otherwise specified. A ‘unit’ is one kilowatt-hour (kWh).
If your supply address is located in a suburb where Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is available, to be eligible for the Synergy Business Time of Use® (R1) tariff you must have an Advanced Meter. If AMI is not currently available in your suburb but becomes available at any time in the future, you will be required to upgrade your meter to an Advanced Meter to remain eligible for this plan. Customers on this plan who elect to ‘opt-out’ of AMI and do not upgrade their meter will be reverted to the Synergy Business Plan ( L1).
The Charity Accommodation Plan (D1) tariff is a Government regulated electricity tariff specifically designed for charitable or benevolent organisations providing residential accommodation. If you believe your organisation is eligible, please apply in writing and return the application to Synergy.
The Synergy Charity Accommodation Plan (D1) tariff is currently available to premises that:
- Are wholly used by a charitable or benevolent organisation for providing residential accommodation other than for commercial gain
- The A1 tariff (single dwelling, residential use only) is not available/ does not apply
The eligibility criteria may change from time to time.
