Energy Rebates

Households experiencing difficulty paying their energy bills will be able to access up to $1,600 a year after the NSW Government increased support payments.
The Energy Accounts Payment Assistance (EAPA) program has helped 49,000 NSW households experiencing short-term financial hardship with their energy bills. From Monday, each application will have its limit increased from $300 to $400, up to a maximum of $1,600 a year.
Eligible customers can receive payment assistance of up to $400 per application for electricity and up to $400 per application for gas bills twice a year.
This means the annual maximum limit of vouchers has increased from $1,200 to $1,600 per household.
The boost to assistance for electricity and gas bills comes as the Australian Energy Regulator released its final determination showing NSW energy customers on standing offers will face price increases from 1st July.
Eligible households can also apply for a range of different rebates including the Low Income Household Rebate, Gas Rebate, Family Energy Rebate, and Seniors Energy Rebate.
Customers can see what they are eligible for by using the Service NSW Savings Finder at, by phoning 13 77 88 or visiting a Service NSW Centre.
