Victorian households are now able to receive a new $250 Power Saving Bonus

The Andrews Labor Government announced a new round of the Power Saving Bonus (PSB) program. Victorian households are able to access a new $250 payment, including any households that received a payment through previous rounds of the program.

Eligible households can apply for a $250 Power Saving Bonus from 24 March 2023 to 31 August 2023.

Eligibility requirements:

  • You must be a residential energy consumer (i.e. have a residential electricity account)
  • You must be the account holder
  • Only one payment is available per household (each round). This is a new offer so even if you received a payment through previous rounds, you can still apply for this one.

Visit the Victorian Energy Compare website or engage with an energy affordability service through a participating community outreach partners to assist with your application.

How to apply

  • Have a copy of a recent electricity bill ready.
  • Make sure you know your NMI number (this is located on your bill and is typically a 10 or 11 digit number).
  • Have an electronic copy of further supporting documentation. Such as: a recent utility bill (e.g. gas or water), rates notice, driver’s license or a concession card.
  • Keep a copy of your application reference number and your bill, as you may need it for further communications about your application.
