Changes to electricity prices, fees and charges 2024

May 14 2024

Each year, the WA State Government reviews electricity tariff prices, fees and charges so they better reflect the costs of making and delivering electricity through Western Australia.

These tariffs are the same across all of WA to ensure everyone pays the same price for electricity no matter where you live.

From 1 July 2024 there will be changes to the electricity tariffs, fees and charges you pay, below forecast inflation. These changes are listed below. 

What's changing?

We’ve listed the main changes to tariffs, fees and charges below. Prices and fees effective 1 July 2024.
