Do you know about the $150 NSW Family Energy Rebate? Applications are now open for the 2015-2016 Rebate and you can apply online.
The Family Energy Rebate helps NSW family households to pay their electricity bills. This year, the scheme gives eligible households with dependent children a $150 credit on their electricity bill. To be eligible you need to be a NSW resident and be eligible for the Federal Government’s Family Tax Benefit A or B at any time during the 2014 – 2015 financial year, and have received a FTB payment and be an account holder of an electricity retailer.
Check eligibility on the website. It only takes two minutes to apply online with your Department of Human Services (DHS) customer reference number and a recent electricity bill, and applications begin processing immediately.
You can also download a paper application form and submit it by email, fax or post to NSW Resources and Energy. Applications must be received by 11pm Thursday 16 June 2016. For more information, visit the NSW Resources and Energy website
