The Queensland government is preparing to pay the $175 Cost of Living Rebate for 2022.
Who receives the Cost of Living rebate?
This rebate is being provided to residential customers who are separately charged for their electricity.
The explanation for why it is done this way can be shown by this statement:
Because Queensland’s power assets are publicly owned, Queenslanders are able to share in the dividends.
Around $500 million from the dividends of government-owned corporations has already been used to provide households with a $50 electricity bill credit in 2018, 2019 and 2020 (twice) and 2021.
Queensland households will have received total dividends of $575 over the past four years. These are automatically credited to residential customers’ electricity bills.
