Electricity asset ownership dividend

To provide continued electricity bill relief, $200 million from the dividends of government-owned corporations will be used to provide households with a $50 per year electricity rebate over the next 2 years ($100 total). This rebate is in addition to any other energy rebate or concession you might be eligible for.

When will I receive the rebate?

You will receive your first $50 rebate from 30 April 2018. There’s no need to apply—the rebate will be automatically applied to your electricity account from 30 April 2018, and will appear on your next electricity bill.

Actual payment dates will vary, depending on your individual electricity billing cycle. If you don’t receive your rebate by July 2018, contact your electricity provider.

Who is eligible for the rebate?

The rebate is being provided to residential customers who are separately charged for their electricity.

This includes households who pay their landlord, property manager, caravan park owner or body corporate in an on-supply arrangement and customers in card-operated meter communities.

Customers who don’t receive a separate electricity bill (e.g. where electricity is included as part of the rent) are not eligible to receive the rebate.
