Discounts and concessions

Pensioner and health care card electricity concessions

Prices effective from 1 July 2012

The pensioner concession is given to Tasmanian pensioners who have a Pensioner Concession Card issued by Centrelink or the Department of Veterans Affairs. The health care card concession is available to Centrelink Health Care Card holders. They are administered by Aurora Energy on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Pensioners need only register for this electricity discount once. You will continue to receive the pensioner rebate of 123.50 cents per day all year round and do not need to reapply each year.

It is not possible to receive the health care card concession in conjunction with the pensioner electricity concession.
