Are you missing out on energy concessions? 

Today, many people are facing increasing energy prices and other cost-of-living pressures; however, around 40% of people who are eligible for ongoing concessions are not taking them up.

Do you, or someone you know, have a Commonwealth concession card such as a Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card, Centrelink HealthCare Card or Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card?

  1. Check if concessions should be applied to your bills.
  2. Make sure you have your retailer’s best offer or find a better deal on the Victorian Energy Compare website.
  3. Make sure to match the weather and follow tips to keep warm and stay cool, whilst staying comfortable.
