Having payment difficulties? Call us on 13 88 60.
We bill monthly for electricity and every two months for gas, to make life easier for you.
If you are eligible, we can set you up on Victorian Government electricity concessions. Visit concessions and rebates for more information. We can also help you to set up Centrepay to make regular Deductions from your Centrelink payments. Centrepay is a voluntary and easy payment option available to Centrelink customers. Go to humanservices.gov.au/Centrepay for more information and to set up your Centrepay Deductions.
If you are still finding things tough, please call us to discuss alternative payment arrangements. We offer payment plans that allow you to pay by smaller, more frequent instalments, which will help with managing the household budget. If you just don’t have the means to pay, please call us and ask about our assistance plan, Bill Assist.

Please call us if you would like to apply for a Utility Relief Grant. Or contact the Victorian Government Concessions Information Line on 1800 658 521.
