Solar panel

Does Perth offer solar?

Yes, if your business has a solar system, you can sign up for a solar plan. You can also request a free quote to have your business assessed and find out how much your business could save by installing solar.

Perth Energy partners with Infinite Energy to provide Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). With a PPA, you can get solar panels installed without paying any up-front costs. You then buy the energy that the solar system produces at a fixed price. Once the PPA ends, you'll own the solar system.

Green energy

How green is Perth Energy

No, Perth Energy isn't GreenPower certified.

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:
  • Single rate with a controlled load
  • Time of use
  • Time of use with a controlled load

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.
