The State Government’s utility concessions will be increased annually in line with the Consumer Price Index to assist people on low and fixed incomes with cost of living expenses. This is the first time that concessions have been indexed in South Australian and it was effective from the start of the month.

Concessions that have increased are Cost of Living Concession, Energy, Water, Sewerage and Medical Heating and Cooling. The increases will be applied automatically, and customers do not need to reapply.
