Support during COVID-19

If you’re experiencing financial stress due to COVID-19, there are several ways your energy provider can help. They can:

  • offer a flexible payment plan or hardship arrangement
  • not disconnect customers who have asked for help or who are accessing retailer support
  • reconnect customers who have been disconnected and waive associated fees
  • defer referrals to debt collection agencies.

Contact your energy provider and ask about the support available to you.

For information on customer protection during COVID-19, visit the Australian Energy Regulator website.
