Bushfire Support

Our thoughts are with all those who have been impacted by the recent bushfire emergency. We’d also like to thank the emergency services who are working tirelessly to protect communities, lives and wildlife across multiple parts of the East Coast and across Australia. If you’ve been affected by any of the recent bushfires, please know that we’re here to support you. Your immediate focus needs to be on your safety, not on your Alinta Energy account.

For our customers in affected areas

We’ve been pausing bills and debt collection notices for customers in affected areas since the bushfires began in late November 2019. 

For those customers that were previously affected but are now no longer under immediate threat, we’ve restarted our regular communications to you. Your next bill might look higher than usual, that’s because it will cover your usage throughout the time we paused everything. You’ll also receive a letter with your bill that explains this in more detail. 

If you need assistance to pay your bill or are experiencing hardship directly due to the bushfires or for any other reason, we can offer you a range of different payment options to help you get back on track. Please call us on 1300 282 613 or if you prefer, email us at hardship@alintaenergy.com.au to discuss the options available to you.

For those who have lost homes or businesses

We’re deeply sorry that you’re experiencing such unimaginable loss or damage due to the bushfires. Please contact us on 13 37 02 when it is appropriate for you and we’ll look to provide immediate assistance, including the waiver of any existing charges remaining on your account.

For volunteer firefighters

Your dedication to protect lives, homes, businesses, wildlife and entire communities across New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and Victoria has been relentless. To say thank you, we’re offering a $200 credit (for more details see below) to be applied to your Alinta Energy account.

Simply fill out an enquiry form and we’ll get in contact with you with the details. Please make sure to choose “Volunteer Firefighter” as the Enquiry type and include your Alinta Energy Customer Account Number and your Volunteer ID Number for the state fire service you are apart of.

If you have any questions or are unable to complete the form, please give us a call on 13 37 02.

We’re also committed to matching our employee fundraising efforts for the fire services in each affected State across Australia.

For volunteer firefighters from Western Australia

The process is slightly different for our volunteer firefighters from WA who are assisting in battling the bushfires across the country. We’ve also extended this offer of credit to you but please contact us on 13 13 58 or email on customer.services@alintaenergy.com.au

For all our customers

Please take care and stay safe. Whatever your circumstance, if you’d like to get in touch please don’t hesitate to call 13 37 02, we’re available Monday to Friday from 9am to 7pm (AEST) or email customer.service@alintaenergy.com.au

*For our Volunteer Firefighters

  • We will apply a $200 credit (including GST) on your next bill. This can be transferred to either your gas or electricity account on request. For WA customers, this will be applied to your gas account.
  • This credit will appear as a line item on your next bill.
  • This credit is subject to you supplying us with your registered volunteer firefighter identification number.
  • This credit is only available once per supply address, is not transferable, and cannot be exchanged for cash. The volunteer firefighter does not need to be the account holder but they do need to be living in the supply address linked to the account.
  • In the event that the value of the credit exceeds the total amount of your gas or electricity bill the remainder of the credit will be applied to your Alinta Energy account.
