How to apply

Current energy concession recipients should have already received a letter and application form for the SACEDO.

New energy concession customers will also be sent a SACEDO application form when their energy concession is approved.

Visit Origin Energy or phone 1300 791 465 if you received the form and would like more information about the offer.

Phone the ConcessionsSA Hotline on 1800 307 758 if you have not received the form.

If you do not want to take up the SACEDO, do not post the form. No changes will be made to your energy account.

What happens next

If you are already an Origin Energy customer, the discount will be applied to your account as soon as you return the application form.

If you are not an Origin Energy customer, your energy account and concession will transfer to Origin Energy at the time of your next meter reading (which may take up to three months).
