Making Synergy more accessible
We’re working to make it as easy as possible to access the information you need to manage your Synergy account, explore our products, information, and blog articles, and learn more about energy in WA.
Here’s an overview of some of our accessibility initiatives, both online and offline, to help improve your experience with Synergy.
Large print bills
To help make reading and understanding your bill easier, you can register for large print billing. This means your bills can be printed in a larger font and delivered by mail.
If you wish to register for large print billing, one of our friendly team members will be happy to help you:
- For residential customers, please call us on 13 13 53 between 7am - 7pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays)
- For business customers, please call us on 13 13 54 between 8am - 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays)
National Relay Service
The National Relay Service is an Australian phone service for people who are d/Deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech communication difficulty. The NRS allows you to use SMS or online messaging to communicate with an interpreter, who speaks to one of our Synergy team members by phone on your behalf.
