Horizon Power is in charge of distributing power to regional Western Australia. It services a vast area with only about 100,000 households in it. Since there are no alternatives where Horizon operates, unfortunately there are no ways to truly compare its prices.
One of Horizon's biggest distinguishing features is its community partnerships program. Horizon sponsors events, equipment or short-term projects for local non-profits and community organisations, providing up to $50,000 in funding.
There are a couple of other perks with Horizon:
Horizon Power is owned by the WA state government. It's the sole electricity provider for Western Australians in the majority of regional WA (covering 2.3 million square kilometres of land).

Yes. If you have an eligible solar system, Horizon Power will pay you for exported solar energy under the Distributed Energy Buyback Scheme (DEBS), similar to feed-in tariffs in other states.
The exact rate you get paid under DEBS will depend on 2 things: the town you live in and the time of day. Rates are split into peak hours of 3pm–9pm and off-peak the rest of the day.
Rates in each town are determined by the local cost of power generation and supply in those areas.
While Horizon Power isn't GreenPower-accredited (allowing customers to pay extra to support Australian renewables), it has a few green credits to its name. It's also not rated by the Green Electricity Guide.
However, Horizon Power is involved in a number of renewables projects, including wind, hydrogen and large-scale solar batteries across Goldfields-Esperance, Pilbara, the Kimberley, Gascoyne and Mid West regions.
In addition, Horizon is working with Synergy and the WA State government to build an electric vehicle fast-charging network from Kununurra in the north to Esperance in the south. It aims to be completed by 2024.
Have something you'd like to clear up? Horizon Power is available between 8am and 5pm AWST, Monday to Friday.
All of Horizon Power's customer support is locally based in Western Australia, with offices mainly along the coast.
Chances are, if you're in a region serviced by Horizon Power, they're your only choice for power. If you're not on a plan from Horizon, you can open a new account online.

Important notes: The estimated price we show by default is based on a single rate tariff. On your bill this might be known as a "peak tariff", "peak only" or an "anytime tariff". There are other tariff types available to customers and you may need to contact your provider if you are on these tariffs:
The price estimate should not be used as an official quote, but an indication of what your costs may be on the plan. It varies based on whether you provide us with your bill details. You can learn more here.
