Energy Concessions, Rebates and Grants
If you’re looking for more info on whether you can get a concession, rebate or grant towards your energy bill, you’ve come to the right place. On this page you’ll find details on all the available concessions that can be applied to your Powershop bill.
What are energy concessions, rebates and grants?
Energy concessions, rebates and grants are provided by state governments to assist people with their energy bills. If you satisfy the required criteria, we’ll apply the concession, rebate and/or grant to your account on behalf of the relevant state government.
How do I know if I can receive a concession, rebate or grant?
There are specific criteria set by the relevant state government that you must satisfy in order to receive a concession, rebate or grant. In most cases, it is a requirement that you hold a valid concession card. In some instances a state government issued seniors card can also qualify for assistance.
What are concession cards?

- Pensioner Concession Card;
- Commonwealth Health Care Card;
- Department of Veteran Affairs Concession Card;
- Foster Child Health Care Card; or
- Low Income Health Care Card.
Not all concession cards provide an entitlement to an energy concession, rebate and/or grant. Further information on eligibility requirements is detailed below.
