Standard Continuing Tariff

The Standard Continuing Tariff is applicable to all electricity consumption in the following instances:


  1. As an interim tariff that will come into effect if, after your current Electricity Supply Agreement with Perth Energy has passed its “Contract End Date”, and you continue to use electricity without entering into a new Electricity Supply Agreement with Perth Energy; and/or
  2. Where you are being supplied electricity pursuant to Perth Energy’s Electricity Standard Form Contract, this is price referred to as the “Contract Price”, and this paragraph forms the price element of the “Customer Schedule” referred to in that contract.
As at 1 July 2018, the Standard Continuing Tariff is as follows:


Prices exclude GST
Electricity Prices (Unbundled)
Electricity Prices (Bundled)
Peak Tariff 11.00 cents/kWh 33.00 cents/kWh
Off-peak Tariff

Please note that the Standard Continuing Tariff is subject to change periodically as published by Perth Energy.


For sites where no electricity is being consumed, including sites where the supply has been disconnected but not abolished, network charges from Western Power and generation reserve capacity charges as levied by the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) in respect of any electricity meter(s) will apply and will be passed on at cost in addition to the daily supply charge noted above. Please note that these charges are often significant and will vary from site to site.

Network charges comprise of transmission and distribution network costs (often referred to as 'wires and poles') from Western Power.
