  • Energy bill relief for small businesses

    The Australian Government is partnering with state and territory governments to provide electricity bill relief for small businesses through the Energy Bill Relief Fund. The states and territories will administer the rebates.


    To be eligible, your small business must be on a separate metered business tariff and consume less than 100 megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity per year. If you run your small business using electricity from your home, you are not eligible. Other exclusions may apply.

    Please Note: One energy bill relief payment will be provided per small business.

    How to apply

    The application process is different depending on whether you are a retail or an on-supply (embedded network) customer.

    If you receive a NSW energy rebate in financial year 2023-24, you will receive the National Energy Bill Relief payment automatically. You do not need to apply. If you are eligible for a NSW energy rebate but don’t receive it, you will first need to apply for the rebate. You will then receive the bill relief payment automatically.

    The NSW Government is encouraging eligible people who won’t automatically receive the Energy Bill Relief to apply from August 1, 2023.
