COVID-19 update: Changes have been made to the way some services are delivered. To apply for household concessions, use the online application form. Processing delays will apply to applications received by post.

The Energy Bill Concession is available to eligible South Australians on low or fixed incomes for assistance with the cost of Electricity bills for their principal place of residence.

To be eligible you must:

  • live at the property
  • be listed as an account holder on your electricity bill
  • hold an eligible concession card or receive an eligible Centrelink payment
  • not be living with anyone who has an income of more than $3,000 per year, unless they either:
  • get an allowance from Centrelink or the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA)
  • are your spouse, domestic partner or dependent.

If you live in a residential park you may be eligible for a combined concession for your water, sewerage and energy - see the Residential Park Resident Concessions.

You can apply online at the website or download the application form and submit by email.

If you are unsure of your eligibility, please visit the Energy Bill Concessions webpage or contact ConcessionsSA direct.

If you have previously applied for concessions, but are not currently receiving them, please contact Concessions SA to discuss further.
