Residential Electricity Price Changes Perth

The residential electricity tariff changes announced by Synergy on July 1, 2023 affect the Home Plan (A1), Midday Saver, and EV Add On.

Home Plan (A1)

Synergy’s Home Plan (A1) electricity tariff is subject to a 2.50% price increase from 1 July 2023. This is the “default” tariff that the majority of Perth home owners will use.

Midday Saver

The Synergy Midday Saver is an electricity tariff that offers lower rates during certain hours of the day. In particular between 9AM and 3PM the rate is just over 8c per unit, while the 3PM to 9PM rate is around 50c per unit. From 9PM to 9AM the rate is 22.5c per unit.

We recommend this tariff to any customer that have a battery. This is because it allows for increased savings during daylight hours and reduced rates at night if the battery does run out of charge.

Another bonus of this tariff is it allows the user to charge their batteries from the grid at a lower rate on those cloudy winter days.

EV Add On

The EV Add on is similar to the midday saver tariff and available for customers who own an electric vehicle.

This tariff has one additional window at  just over 18c per unit between midnight and 6AM.

The following plans are no longer offered. SmartPower (SM1), Powershift(PS1) and HotWater Plan (B1)
