Expanded energy bill relief for consumers

The Australian Government is providing $3.5 billion to extend and expand the Energy Bill Relief Fund and provide electricity bill relief to all Australian households and eligible small businesses in 2024-25.

From 1 July 2024, all Australian households will receive a $300 rebate on their electricity bill. Eligible small businesses will receive a $325 rebate. 

The rebates will be paid in quarterly instalments throughout 2024-25. State and territory governments will administer the rebates and deliver the payments through electricity retailers.

In most cases, electricity providers will automatically apply the rebate to electricity accounts meaning consumers won’t be required to take action.

This bill relief builds on the $1.5 billion in energy rebates provided by the government in 2023-24 under the Energy Bill Relief Fund.
