Perth (Australia) - Utilities


Water is provided by The Water Corporation. For accounts enquiries, dial 13 13 85. If you are leasing a property, the onus is on your real estate agent / owner to provide change in addresses to the Water Corporation. If you are the owner of the property, you will need to inform The Water x.Corporation. If you are renting a property, different lease arrangements have different arrangements when it comes to settling the water bill. In most situations, your water should be connected for retic purposes (reticulation is the non-portable automatic watering / sprinkling system for gardening). The water bill you settle each month should be for the water used in your home. In the hot and dry months (usually the summer months Dec – Feb), there could be restrictions against the use of sprinklers and by hose. Restrictions on water usage, however, are less in Perth / WA as it is in the eastern states, given the smaller population.

There are two main electricity providers in Western Australia – Synergy Energy (www.synergy.net.au; Tel : 13 13 53) and Horizon Power (www.horizonpower.com.au; Tel : 1800 267 926). Residents living within the Perth metropolitan area and its regional cities are connected with Synergy Energy. To open a new account, you need to fill up an application form accessible here.

Like electricity, gas providers supply gas within designated areas. Alinta (www.alinta.net.au; Tel : 9486 3000) and Synergy (www.synergy.net.au; 13 13 53) supplies gas in the Perth metropolitan areas.
