Our response to the bushfire emergency

ActewAGL has grown alongside the Canberra region for over 100 years, we have a big responsibility to the people who live here.

The ongoing bushfire emergency and extreme weather conditions continue to challenge our region. In the short term your safety and wellbeing remains our highest priority, and we will continue to be here for our affected customers now, through and beyond the recovery process.

We have made an immediate upfront financial commitment to our community partners, the St Vincent de Paul Society and The Salvation Army to deliver crucial individual and community disaster assistance.

We unlocked our archives to auction off a collection of sports memorabilia. Rare items had been received over time due to ActewAGL's support of local sporting organisations, and winning bids raised over $2000. In total the Allbids Bush Fire Appeal Auction raised over $15,000 for the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery fund.

Regional response

For NSW customers in bushfire impacted areas we've pressed ‘pause’ on all bills and have applied automatic payment extensions.

For anyone who has lost a property no further billing will occur since your last meter read date.

For ACT customers who may need help with their bills we encourage you to get in touch to discuss available support options, such as payment plans and extensions and our Staying Connected hardship program. Our team of Energy Experts are available on 13 14 93.

We are not done yet—we will continue to evolve our support and commitments to meet the needs of the region. ActewAGL is proud to be a part of the Capital community that unites and takes care of its own when it matters most.
