Standard Continuing Tariff

The Standard Continuing Tariff is a flat rate that applies to all electricity consumption irrespective of time of day or day of week.
The Standard Continuing Tariff is applicable in the following instances:

  1. As an interim tariff that will come into effect if, after your current supply agreement with Perth Energy has passed its “Contract End Date”, and you continue to use electricity without entering into a new supply agreement with Perth Energy, where you have not already been provided with a “New Offer”; and
  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 2016, the Standard Continuing Tariff is structured as follows:

Prices (excluding GST)
Peak tariff 31.00 cents/kWh
Off-peak tariff 31.00 cents/kWh
Daily supply charge $5.34 per day


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 signification 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.
