Energy deals to help seniors stay warm this winter

The weather is getting cooler but NSW Seniors Card deals are warming up with savings available on energy costs this winter.

Minister for Seniors Natalie Ward said an exclusive EnergyAustralia deal will help ensure seniors have more money left over for doing the things they love.

“NSW Seniors Card and NSW Senior Savers Card members who sign up for EnergyAustralia’s ‘Total Plan’, receive 27 per cent off electricity, 25 per cent off gas and up to a $100 energy credit,” Mrs Ward said.

“Saving on basic living costs leaves more in the wallet for things that stave off social isolation, such as catching the train to see friends, groceries for a family dinner or buying a four-legged companion.”

Member for Oatley Mark Coure said this deal is a way to thank our seniors for their invaluable contributions to society.

“People aged over 60 are respected members of our communities and deals like this are a thank you for their lifelong contribution,” Mr Coure said.

Mark Brownfield, EnergyAustralia Residential Executive, said seniors can also call for a free ‘Energy Health Check’.

“We’ll review your current energy bills to ensure you’re getting a fair price and see if you’ll be better off with our exclusive offer,” Mr Brownfield said.

“We understand getting value for money matters, so we’re pleased to give seniors this great discount and up-front credit on their gas and electricity.”

EnergyAustralia is among more than 7,500 NSW businesses offering deals for seniors. Other offers include half-price RSPCA senior pet adoptions and 50 per cent off metro to regional NSW TrainLink fares and five per cent off IGA gift cards.
