JBT Energy Bill Relief Fund
The Australian Government’s Energy Bill Relief Fund will soon be rolling out to households and businesses in the Jervis Bay Territory.
Under this initiative, all residential households who pay electricity through the Jervis Bay Territory Power Service will be eligible for a single rebate of $500, and all eligible businesses will receive a single rebate of $650.
The Australian Government is fully funding these rebates, with the amounts consistent with the level of energy bill relief funding provided by the Australian Government to eligible New South Wales residents and businesses.
How will it work?
The scheme will apply to customers with an electricity account as at 11 September 2023.
No applications are necessary, as electricity bills will be automatically adjusted by the Jervis Bay Territory Administration Office. If the electricity bill is less than $500, the remaining credit will be carried forward to future electricity bills, up until 30 June 2024.
There will be one rebate of up to $500 per individual and residential household. For example, where someone has a family member’s electricity bill in their name, as well as their own, only one rebate will be applied.
The business rebate amounts and eligibility are consistent with the eligibility criteria provided by the New South Wales Energy Bill Relief Fund. Only one energy bill relief payment will be provided per small business in the 2023-24 financial year. Eligibility criteria can be found at Energy bill relief for small businesses, NSW | energy.gov.au
The electricity bill relief is a one-off reduction to household and business electricity bills in the current 2023-24 financial year.
The Jervis Bay Territory Administration Office will deliver the rebates as soon as possible this financial year.
