Sunshine Saver

Now you can have your time in the sun.

A new energy solution making it easier for more households to save on their energy bills

Sunshine Saver is a new subscription-based product 

That gives you the freedom and flexibility to start saving on your energy bills.

It has been made especially for people who are renting their homes or have been recognised by Horizon Power as having ongoing financial hardship that would prevent them from being able to invest in their own renewable energy generation, such as installing their own solar panels.

Enjoy the benefits of Sunshine Saver

For eligible customers, Sunshine Saver will allow you to share in the benefits from our investment in local renewable energy and help you save on your energy bills.

How does the Sunshine Saver subscription work?

* These are approximate savings only, based on the average consumption of a residential A2 tariff customer in in the Gascoyne Mid-West and Norseman areas. Individual customer savings will vary depending on energy used during 6am and 6pm. There is no rollover of unused energy. Not eligible for DEBS payments.

Jody - Subscribed to Sunshine Saver in Esperance

I was expecting a savings of maybe $25 to $30 but I saved more than I expected. I think it was about $40 that I’m ahead.

Jody signed up and made a few simple changes to her household habits. She was happy to see savings on her very next bill.
