Horizon Power electricity
Owned by the Western Australian state government, Horizon Power provides power to over 100,000 homes and 10,000 businesses across the state. It specialises in the area known as the North West Interconnected System (NWIS) and the surrounding rural regions. The company provides electricity to the biggest area with the least amount of customers in the world.
Horizon supplies energy from a range of sources and is committed to developing infrastructure and systems to increase renewable energy across the state. If you live in a community serviced by Horizon Power, you likely won't be able to choose your energy provider as Horizon is the only energy supplier in many areas of Western Australia.
The energy company does offer simple energy plans for residents and businesses as electricity prices in Western Australia are set by the government.

Can I get solar power?
Horizon Power offers solar power to eligible customers. However, you must apply for approval from the provider before you can install a solar system. The retailer limits the number of properties in each solar network because there is a limit to the amount of electricity that each network can take.
Find out if you qualify for solar power with Horizon Power by using the online eligibility calculator.
Can I get GreenPower?
Horizon Power isn't GreenPower certified, which means you can't pay to source your energy from renewable sources.
