Who is this for?

Large commercial and industrial TAS businesses.


The Tasmanian government recognises that large business customers, often referred to as commercial and industrial (C&I) business customers, that have entered fixed priced contracted electricity agreements over 2022 and early 2023 may be paying higher prices for their electricity.

To help these businesses, the Tasmanian government is offering a one-off payment of up to $20,000 for 80% of the difference between their new weighted average electricity price and a reference rate of $87.96 per MWh, covering their contract period.
