Is Synergy right for me?

  • What does Synergy offer? Synergy offers electricity for residences and businesses in Western Australia as well as gas for businesses in Western Australia.
  • Product highlights: Synergy provides comprehensive solar and GreenPower options, and the company owns a wind farm that is an accredited GreenPower supplier.
  • Watch out for: Synergy is only available within the south-west of the state and doesn't offer gas to residences or small businesses that use less than 180GJ of gas per year.

Synergy electricity and gas

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.

Can I get solar power?

Synergy offers a wide range of solar options to meet customers' individual needs. Synergy's solar department, "SolarReturn", helps customers with a range of solar solutions from installing panels to purchasing batteries. The company offers solar bundles specifically designed to withstand extreme WA conditions. Depending on the bundles you choose, you can purchase a range of products from Synergy, including the following:

  • Solar panels
  • Solar inverters
  • Solar monitoring systems
  • Batteries

Can I get GreenPower?

Yes, Synergy is GreenPower accredited. You can choose to support Australia's renewable industry by purchasing an agreed amount of green energy, which is based on a percentage of your electricity consumption. Synergy has an online calculator tool to help you estimate your desired green energy contribution.

The provider also operates a wind farm in Albany that is an accredited supplier for the GreenPower program. The Albany wind farm reduces gas emissions by the equivalent amount of removing 15,000 cars from Australian roads for a whole year.

Operating areas

If you live in WA but are outside of Synergy's area of operation, your residential electricity will most likely be supplied by Horizon Power. If you own a business, you may be able to choose your electricity provider.
