Households could save up to $225 and small businesses up to $360 over three years, thanks to a three-month extension of Ergon’s Easy Pay Rewards offer.

The extension was announced by Energy Minister Dr Anthony Lynham on Wednesday.

“Eligible residents will receive a $75 per year rebate and small businesses $120 per year providing they opt in before the specified dates in exchange for e-billing, direct debit and bill smoothing,” Dr Lynham said.

“The government understands the cost of living is an issue for families and impacts on small business’ capacity to create jobs.

“More than 53,000 Queensland households are reducing energy usage and bills with the energy efficient appliances we helped them buy with our rebates.

“Our means-tested, interest-free loans will help more Queensland families install solar systems.

“On top of all this every household is receiving $50 off their power bill this year, and next year, and our price cap guarantees that electricity prices will not rise above inflation for two years.”

The extension will allow customers who opt in:

  • Before September 30 to receive three annual payments
  • After September 30 but before April 1, 2019, to receive two annual payments
  • After April 1, 2019, but before January 1, 2020, to receive one annual payment
