Electricity fees & charges

Horizon Power delivers energy solutions to regional and remote Western Australia. We’re focused on ensuring reliable electricity is provided to our customers in the most efficient way to reduce costs.

Most of our customers pay a tariff that is much lower than the actual cost of purchasing or generating, distributing and retailing electricity. The difference between the tariffs customers pay and the actual cost is subsidised by the WA State Government.

Current tariffs, fees and charges and information on additional products, rebates and subsidies are available below. All prices are correct as at 1 July 2022, include GST (except where noted otherwise) and are subject to change at any time.
