The Energy Charter today welcomed Horizon Power to its signatory base, after the Western Australian energy provider joined the whole-of-industry initiative which aims to improve customer outcomes across the entire energy supply chain.
Formed in January this year, the Energy Charter is a CEO-led initiative that acknowledges the need for industry-wide collaboration to support customers as the energy market rapidly changes.
Chair of the Energy Charter CEO Council, John Cleland, congratulated Horizon Power and its CEO Stephanie Unwin for committing to the industry vision and values that underpin the Energy Charter.
“Horizon Power is a significant generator, distributor and retailer of electricity for regional and remote Western Australia, and we are delighted they have joined the Energy Charter,” he said.

The Charter now has 19 signatories, which service more than 10 million energy consumers in Australia.
