Family Energy Rebate
The NSW Family Energy Rebate helps eligible NSW family households to pay their electricity bills.
In 2012-2013 the Family Energy Rebate gives eligible households an annual $75 credit on an electricity bill.
If eligible, and you live in a caravan or mobile home park, the 2012-2013 Family Energy Rebate is $82.50, which is the standard $75 rebate plus 10% to cover the Goods and Services Tax (GST) component of the electricity bill charged by a park operator.
If you are eligible for both the Family Energy Rebate and the Low Income Household Rebate you can receive more support in the form of an annual, combined, capped rebate of $250.
To be eligible for the 2012-2013 Family Energy Rebate, you must:
Be eligible for the Federal Government’s Family Tax Benefit A or B at any time during the 2011-2012 financial year, and have received a relevant payment; and
Be a NSW resident; and
Have your name listed on electricity bills from an electricity retailer, solely or jointly. or be a resident of a caravan or mobile home park and receive electricity bills from a park operator.
You can complete an application form for the Family Energy Rebate in either of two ways:

Is this for sole parents as well or just couples? The whole thing confuses me.

Otherwise i have no idea.
ETA: Yep, just sussed it out and for single parents on PPS, all we have to do is notify our electricity provider of our CRN and pension card expiry date and the rebate appears on the bill as a credit.
