Annual electricity concession


A concession on domestic mains electricity usage and service costs is available to eligible card holders. The concession is available year-round.

The concession amounts to 17.5% of electricity usage and service cost, and is calculated after retailer discounts and solar credits have been deducted.

Households with very high electricity bills (over $3,563.00 in the year, starting 1 December 2022) need to apply for the Excess electricity concession to continue to receive a concession on their bill.


To be eligible for the concession, the electricity account holder must have one of the following:

  • Pensioner Concession Card
  • Health Care Card
  • Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card.

Other conditions may apply.
