- ENERGY COMPARISON REBATES
This is not about saving money on your electricity bill – although you might in the process – but you’ll simply get paid for spending around 10 mins doing the comparison. It’s part of the state government’s initiative to keep our power companies competitive.
These offers aren’t available in all states but the current participating programs are linked below.
There is a fresh round of $250 instant rebates available for Victorians from the 24th March 2023 – even if you made a comparison last year.
In NSW there is a Family Energy Rebate of $250 for families registered for the Family Tax Benefit. This round of rebates closes on the 23rd June 2023.
