Jul 18, 2022

Anglesea Community house is an official community outreach provider for the State Government’s $250 Power Saving Bonus. 

We are assisting community members to receive this one-off payment to help ease energy bill stress, and to help them seek out a better energy deal.

As of 1 July 2022, this payment is available to all Victorian households.

What is the $250 Power Saving Bonus?

The $250 Power Saving Bonus is a one-off $250 payment which provides direct support to Victorian households experiencing power bill stress during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Who is eligible for the Power Saving Bonus? 

To be eligible, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be a Victorian residential energy consumer (i.e. have a residential electricity account)
  • You must be the account holder


When can households apply?

This program is running from 1 July 2022 until 30 June 2023.

How many people per household can apply?

Only one payment is available to each household. 

I am a concession card holder who received the previous Power Saving Bonus before 1 July 2022. Can I apply again?

Yes you can.
