Network access prices

Western Power’s Price List sets the prices that apply to network access services, that is the charges for transporting electricity on our network.  These services are provided to all customers connected to the Western Power Network but are generally charged to retailers and generators who have a contractual relationship with Western Power.  The Price List is updated from time to time, but generally on a financial year basis.  Individual consumers should seek tariff information from their retailer.
