Energy bill relief for Jervis Bay Territory

The Albanese Labor Government continues to deliver cost of living relief to families and businesses across the Jervis Bay Territory, through the Energy Bill Relief Fund.

From today, every household will see a $300 credit automatically applied to their electricity bills and eligible small businesses will receive $325 off their bills over 2024–25.

This relief will be directly applied to people’s energy accounts, with the Government to work with territory electricity providers to deliver this support.

In September last year, the Energy Bill Relief Fund was rolled out to non-self-governing territories – the first time Jervis Bay Territory residents could access Commonwealth Government rebates.

This additional support builds on the energy bill rebates already delivered to households ($500) and eligible businesses ($650) in the Jervis Bay Territory – which were automatically credited to bills.

Quotes attributable to the Federal Minister for Territories, Kristy McBain MP: 

“We’re committed to improving the support and services available to Jervis Bay Territory residents, which is why we’re delivering this important cost of living relief.

“Until last year, Jervis Bay Territory residents couldn’t access Commonwealth Government rebates – but thanks to the Albanese Labor Government, this important support will continue.” 

Quotes attributable to the Federal Member for Fenner, Andrew Leigh MP:

“Families in the Jervis Bay Territory deserve the same financial support as people outside the territory, which is why our government is financing the energy relief rebates. 

“I am proud to be part of a government that is helping families where it is most needed.”
