Energy concessions are payments to assist people to meet their energy consumption costs in certain circumstances. Generally, energy concessions are administered through an electricity bill.
The scheme applies to people living in retirement villages, apartment buildings or caravan parks (as a long-stay resident) where the electricity costs are recouped from the tenants by the owner (such as strata entity, retirement village management or caravan park management) because the owner is directly billed by Synergy or Horizon Power on behalf of the residential complex.
It also applies to households that receive electricity charges direct from a retailer other than Synergy or Horizon Power, such as Perth Energy or Alinta Sales.
The concessions include
- the Energy Assistance Payment
- the Dependent Child Rebate and
- the Air Conditioning Rebate
