2015 – 2016 Family Energy Rebate

Submission deadline | Thursday 16 June, 2016

The Family Energy Rebate helps NSW family households with dependent children to cover the costs of their energy bills.

The Family Energy Rebate provides eligible households a credit on an energy bill of $150, or $15 if the household also qualifies for the Low Income Household Rebate.

If you live in an on-supplied residential community, retirement village or strata scheme the rebate is $165, or $16.50 if the household also qualifies for the Low Income Household Rebate.

To be eligible for the NSW Family Energy Rebate, you must:

  • be a resident of New South Wales; and
  • be an account holder of an electricity retailer, or a long term resident of an on-supplied residential community, or a resident of an on-supplied retirement village, or a resident of an on-supplied strata scheme; and whose name appears on the electricity account for supply to her or his principal place of residence; and
  • have been assessed by the Federal Department of Human Services (DHS) as being eligible for the Family Tax Benefit (FTB) A or B during the previous financial year, and have received a payment of FTB in respect of that eligibility.
