There are only a handful of choices for energy retailers in Western Australia, but it’s still important to know about your suppliers.
The energy market in Western Australia is still regulated by the state government, which means that most residents don’t have a lot of choice when it comes to your energy provider. However if you live in the South West Interconnected System (SWIS), an area that extends around from Kalbarri in the north, to Kalgoorlie-Boulder in the east and Albany in the south, then you do have a little choice, and Synergy is one of those choices.
Who is Synergy?
In 2013, the Western Australian government announced the merger of the south west's two largest energy companies, Verve Energy and Synergy. Today the two brands continue under the name Synergy and supply energy across the SWIS, from a wide range of sources, including renewables.
What packages are offered by Synergy?
Synergy provides a range of fixed energy tariffs. Basically this means that you pay a fixed daily connection rate, and then a further fixed fee for each unit of energy you use. This is a standard way that many energy companies charge, and means that you pay for exactly the energy that you use.
The rates and charges vary depending on your property type, usage and whether you’re powering a home or a business. Synergy has a handy tool on its website that allows you to input a little information about your property and then find out which tariff will suit your needs and uses the most.Back to top
