Discount energy plans

Victorian seniors can now save a bundle on their electricity and gas bills through a new Victorian Seniors Card initiative. According to the Minister for Ageing, David Davis, this is the first time that the program is offering a Seniors Card discount on retail energy plans.

To help them compare publicly available energy offers and learn how to reduce their energy usage with practical energy saving tips, seniors can tap into information available on the Victorian Government Seniors Online and Switch On websites. 

When compared with the current cost of energy plans, this special Victorian Seniors Card offer could save seniors around $500 on their annual household energy bills. Savings will vary depending on customer’s individual circumstances.
