Small and medium sized Victorian businesses are invited to apply for funding to carry out an energy assessment under the new Sustainability Victoria Business Boosting Productivity program.
There are two grants under the $3 million Victorian Government program to help small and medium sized businesses to improve energy efficiency, save money and increase productivity.
Grants of up to $150,000 will be available for industry associations and business networks to strengthen and build business capabilities in energy efficiency. Expressions of interest will open in a few weeks.
Businesses with less than 200 employees, spending more than $20,000 per annum on energy bills, can cut energy costs and increase productivity with the help of an energy assessment, access expert advice and find out about options for financing energy efficiency upgrades.
The grants are offered at two funding levels: up to $2,000 for a basic energy assessment and up to $6,000 for a detailed energy assessment on a matched funding ($1:$1) basis.
Successful applicants can also access a maximum $3,000 bonus to help implement one or more of their energy efficiency assessment recommendations.
Applications for small to medium sized business energy assessment grants are open now.
