Cheaper power bills ahead
Nearly 2 million households will see another $50 taken off their electricity bills from this month.
The dividends come on top of the Palaszczuk Government’s COVID household relief package, which provided Queensland households with $200 off their utility bills and $500 for small business.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Queenslanders continued to reap the rewards of owning their electricity assets with the recent $50 dividend being applied as a credit on their electricity bills.
The dividend payment already applied to some Ergon regional bills from last week and will be appearing progressively as people receive bills.
Energy Minister Dr Anthony Lynham said the Palaszczuk Government had also locked in another annual $50 dividend payments to go to Queensland households in 2021.
The $50 dividend payment dividend will go to home owners, tenants, customers who receive an electricity bill from their landlord or body corporate, and customers in communities with card-operated meters.
