On 9 May 2024 the State Government announced a one-off credit of $400 to reduce electricity bills for small business, as well as residential, customers.

On Tuesday 14 May 2024, the Commonwealth government announced additional funding for energy bill relief. We will update this website when further information is received.

Synergy or Horizon Power customers

Small businesses that receive their electricity through Synergy or Horizon Power do not need to take any action. You will receive a direct credit to eligible electricity accounts in two payments of $200 in late July 2024 and December 2024. 

Electricity through an embedded network

Eligible small businesses that receive electricity through an embedded network supply arrangement, may apply for and receive a one-off $400 payment via this page.

Embedded networks include examples such as shopping centres, businesses operating from airports, ports and industrial parks, businesses that have a sub-meter linked to a master meter controlled by the landlord, and circumstances where landlords purchase electricity from energy providers and on-sell the electricity to their small business tenants.

Information will be available shortly regarding the application process, which will open in July 2024. Please check back on this page for updates.

The electricity credit payments are being made as part of 2024-25 State Budget commitments to reduce cost-of-living pressures for Western Australians.
