The Andrews Government is making a one-off $250 Power Saving Bonus available to all Victorian households with at least one JobSeeker, youth allowance recipient or pensioner. Households will need to visit Victorian Energy Compare and apply for the $250 payment through the website. While you’re there, I strongly encourage you to look around for a better energy deal – on average households save around $330 off their annual bill by using the Energy Compare website to get a better deal.

The Power Saving Bonus is part of $797 million Energy Savings package to help households with their energy costs. This includes helping 250,000 low-income households to upgrade their heating and cooling, and upgrading 35,000 social housing properties with energy efficiency improvements.
