Rebates and assistance


Seniors energy rebate


The Seniors Energy Rebate is available for eligible independent retirees who hold a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card (CSHC) to help cover the cost of their electricity.

The rebate is $200 per household, per financial year. A household can only receive one Seniors Energy Rebate each financial year (even if more than one eligible retiree lives at the same address).

If your application is successful, the rebate will be paid directly into your nominated bank or Credit Union account.


To be eligible for the rebate you must:

  • be a NSW resident
  • have a valid CSHC from Centrelink or the Department of Veteran Affairs
  • be the primary account holder named on the electricity bill
  • be applying for the rebate for your primary place of residence.

Other conditions may apply.
