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.
To apply for the concession, phone your gas retailer or visit their website.
