Winter gas concession


Eligible concession card holders could receive a concession on their gas bill during the winter months.

The concession is 17.5% of domestic mains gas usage and service costs between 1 May and 30 October each year, and is calculated after retailer discounts are deducted.

The concession does not apply to the first $62.40 of the 6-month winter period bills. This is calculated as a daily rate on each 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.
