How we calculate your bill

The rates and charges for electricity are set by the State Government. Synergy uses these to calculate your electricity bill in two parts. It's a combination of how much electricity you use and a daily cost for your connection to the electricity network.

Your electricity use information is provided to us by Western Power who reads your meter approximately every two months. This is called ‘meter data’ or ‘energy data’ and is obtained from actual meter readings or estimated meter readings. Synergy is required to use this data when calculating your bill. 

This is then used by Synergy to calculate your electricity bill. We do this by applying your nominated electricity tariff or plan to the data, to obtain what we refer to as ‘billing data’. 

Western Power is responsible for the meter/energy data and Synergy is responsible for billing data.  

If, for any reason, you feel the amount on your bill is not what you expected, simply contact us and we will review your bill.
