You may qualify if you are a South Australian resident. 


The South Australian Government introduced the Medical Heating and Cooling Concession to assist South Australians on a fixed or low income who have a clinically verified medical condition requiring the frequent use of heating or cooling in the home to prevent the severe exacerbation of their condition.


The South Australian Energy Rebate recently increased to $231.41 per year or $ 0.634 (GST excl) per day. It is available to eligible applicants in addition to the current energy concession and is paid directly to customers by the Department of Human Services (DHS).


For more information about eligibility and application forms, please visit the Medical Heating and Cooling concession page on the SA.GOV website or call the DHS Concessions Hotline on 1800 307 758.
