NT Concession cap

Caps on concessions for water and electricity will be applied from 1 July 2018. The caps on electricity and water concessions were determined based on an average household consumption in Darwin.

The electricity concession has a maximum benefit of $1,200 each year, per household, based on the average household using 8,000 kWh of electricity per year.

The water concession has a maximum benefit of $800 each year, per household, based on the average household using 471 kL per year.

You will see a message on your invoice once you have reached 50%, 80% and 100% of your cap.
