What is the uniform tariff policy?

Under the State Government’s uniform tariff policy everyone in the State pays the same price for electricity regardless of where they live – in large metropolitan areas where the cost of purchasing, generating, distributing and retailing electricity is lower or regional and remote areas of the State where the costs are often higher. This is called the uniform tariff policy and ensures customers are not disadvantaged by where they choose to live. 

Each year the WA Government reviews our tariffs, fees and charges and sets the prices our customers pay for electricity on 1 July.
