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 $2,890.45 in the year, starting 1 December 2018) 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.
