Where is Synergy Available?
Synergy supplies energy across the South West Interconnected System (SWIS) of Western Australia. The provider supplies more than one million customers with energy from a wide range of sources, including wind farms, solar and other renewables. For non-contestable customers on the SWIS, Synergy is the only electricity provider in the region. Most residences and small businesses are considered to be non-contestable if they use less than 50MWh of electricity per year.
Electricity prices in Western Australia are set by the government. The rates and charges vary depending on your property type, usage and whether you're powering a home or a business.
Synergy also provides gas to businesses that spend approximately $6,400 p.a. (approximately 180GJ p.a.) or more on gas.
