Some questions we hear a lot...
Public Benevolent Institutions (PBI) are a type of charitable institution whose main purpose is to relieve poverty or distress.
PBIs are recognised by the Australian Charities and Non-for-profit Commission (ACNC) and the Australian Taxation Office as a subtype of charity.
Most NT-based PBI organisations are operating in sectors such as remote and aboriginal health, welfare and social services, emergency relief, community care services etc.
It's simple! If you believe your charity is eligible for the PBI tariff, please phone us on 1800 JACANA (1800 522 262) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to update your account and start benefiting from lower electricity rates.
Please note we will check your organisation's eligibility for the tariff against the ACNC register.
