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 in 2018 and 2019 ($100 total). This rebate is in addition to any other energy rebate or concession for which you might be eligible.

When will I receive the rebate?

You will receive the 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.

Actual payment dates will vary, depending on your individual electricity billing cycle. If you did not receive your rebate by July 2018, please 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.
