EnergyAustralia continues to support customers in financial stress

EnergyAustralia has reaffirmed commitment to our customers doing it tough during the Coronavirus pandemic in Australia. 

A message to our customers from Chief Customer Officer, Mark Collette:

The COVID-19 situation is unlike anything we have seen or experienced before. We support the call by the Australian Energy Regulator for a whole-of-industry response to help households and businesses nation-wide get through this challenging time. 

Financial support 

Residential customers
EnergyAustralia supports residential customers in financial stress every day through our EnergyAssist hardship program. We help every customer in financial stress who reaches out for help - tailoring payment plans, providing advice on grant programs that customers may be eligible for and advice on energy usage.  All EnergyAssist customers remain connected to our energy system - we do not disconnect residential customers in financial stress who have reached out for help.

If you're worried about not being able to pay your energy bill, reach out to us. You may be eligible for hardship assistance and our team stands ready to support you.

As our business customers reach out for help we are working with them, case by case, to take the right actions to support their business.
