If you or someone in your property uses one of the below life support equipment, you may be eligible for protection under the life support energy regulations.
This means your address is registered with your local network and they will advise you in advance of any electricity outages so you can plan accordingly.
It also means in the event of a power outage your property will be on the priority list for reconnection of supply.
To be fully registered and receive all the protections provided to customers requiring life support equipment at their premises, complete the medical confirmation form and send it to us by email or post.
If you live outside Victoria a medical certificate can count as medical confirmation provided that:
If your registered address is outside Victoria and you have an existing ‘Medical Confirmation Form’ dated and signed by a medical practitioner, you can send us that form instead of providing us with a new one. The form should meet the following requirements:
Additional for Victoria only:
If you have any questions about the equipment you or someone in your home uses and whether it is life support equipment, please talk to your doctor.
It’s important your distributor and retailer know so we can do our best to keep your property on electricity supply.
Once registered, this means that you are given additional notice (4 days notice) of any planned power outages and that your property is treated as priority for reconnection if and when there are any outages.
Your power can go out without warning. It is important that you have a plan if this happens. Make note of:
In some states there are concessions and rebates for customers with Life Support Equipment. Visit Concessions to see what you may qualify for and download the relevant forms.
There are situations that result in deregistration of life support at your premise:
If we don’t hear from you
If we haven’t received the completed Medical confirmation Form within the stipulated timeframe, and haven’t heard from you, we will notify the distributor to de-register your premises for life support. Once the site is de-registered you will not receive the protections provided for customers with life support under the regulations.
We will actively try to contact you prior to de-registration, using the telephone number and email address provided by you at the time you set up your customer account with us.
If you leave Energy Locals
If you’ve registered your requirement for Life Support Equipment with us, your registration will cease and you’ll need to apply to have your Life Support Equipment registered with your new retailer. If you’ve registered with your distributor, they’ll let your new retailer know.
If you move house
Your registration is specific to your current address, if you move to a new house you’ll need call us on 1300 693 637 to re-apply to have your Life Support Equipment registered at your new address.
If you no longer need life support registered at your address
Call us on 1300 693 637 and we will update your account. We’ll send you a confirmation letter to confirm when the Life Support registration is being de-registered from your account.
