The Tasmanian Government is providing financial relief to residents and businesses facing rising energy costs. Here’s what you need to know:

Key Points

  • Households: All Tasmanian households will receive a $250 credit directly on their electricity accounts.
  • Small Businesses: Each eligible small business will receive a $300 credit on their electricity accounts.
  • Timing: Payments are expected to be distributed before the end of the current financial year.
  • Cost: The rebate program will cost the Tasmanian Government $74 million.


  • The rebate is part of the state’s Renewable Energy Dividend program, which returns profits from government-owned clean energy businesses to Tasmanians.
