Changes to tariffs, fees and charges

Horizon Power’s pricing will change from Monday, 1 July 2019 following the State Government Budget announcement of the lowest increase in tariffs, fees and charges since 2006-07.

The increase in residential electricity tariffs is 1.75%.  This is in line with the forecast inflation rate, with the average household electricity bill expected to increase by $57 per year, or an extra $1.10 per week[1].  

Electricity tariffs remain significantly lower than the average cost to supply customers, with the Government subsidy for FY2019-20 being $171 million, or around an average $3,420 per customer connection.

Current tariffs, fees and charges, and information on additional products, rebates and subsidies are available on our website.
