The Boosting Productivity energy assessment grants program is open to small and medium sized businesses with less than 200 full time employees, spending over $20,000 a year on energy.
An energy assessment will identify potential energy efficiency improvements for your business, review pricing tariffs, and suitable renewable energy options.
Two grants types are available to cover 50% of the cost of an energy assessment at your business site:
- Basic energy assessment grant: up to $2000 towards the cost of the assessment. This is recommended for businesses spending between $20,000 and $50,000 on energy per annum
- Detailed energy assessment grant: up to $6000 towards the cost of the assessment. This is recommended for businesses spending more than $50,000 on energy per annum.
A $3000 implementation bonus is also available for businesses that carry out one or more assessment recommendations, which will result in in energy (GJ) reduction at the business site.
