Energy Rebate (NSW)


Life Support - Energy Rebate (NSW)

If you have an electricity account in your name and you or someone else in your household requires medical equipment (Eg. CPAP machine) to sustain that person's life, you may be entitled to a Rebate on your electricity bill.

The Life Support Rebate Application Form can be obtained from your electricity retailer or downloaded here.

You will need to fill in the form, have it signed by your doctor to confirm that you require the equipment, and send the completed form back to your retailer. The Rebate will be applied to your future bills on approval of your application.

You will need to submit a new, signed application form every two years to your retailer. This is to ensure that the Rebate is only provided to eligible customers.
