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.
Effective 1 July 2020. Prices are subject to change from time to time and other fees and charges may also apply. Prices listed include GST unless otherwise stated. By law we calculate our prices to four decimal places. Electricity is charged by the 'unit'. A 'unit' is one kilowatt-hour (kWh).
The pricing details shown relate to Synergy customers connected to the South West Interconnected System (SWIS), covering the area from Kalbarri in the North, down to Albany in the South and East to Kalgoorlie. For other areas of Western Australia outside of the SWIS please contact Horizon Power.
