Cost of living relief continues to roll out
$200 rebates have been applied to power bills to get financial relief to households – with the remaining half-a-million south-east Queensland households to receive their $200 rebates soon.
Another $50 credit off power bills will follow from 1 September.
Queensland already has the lowest power prices on the eastern seaboard but this is the most difficult period many Queenslanders have ever experienced and households need help to get through.
Cost of living relief is always important, particularly for young families, people on fixed incomes and jobseekers.
On top of the $200 rebate, the next $50 dividend payment off power bills has also been brought forward to help Queenslanders – with another $50 dividend locked in for the 2021-2022 financial year.
This means Queenslanders will receive $250 in utility relief this year.
Queenslanders who have not received their utility relief payment on their power bill are encouraged to contact their electricity retailer or to visit the Smart Savings website to check their eligibility for other Queensland energy concession and rebates.
Queenslanders are also encouraged to contact their retailer in the case that they need assistance to pay their power bill.
