SA State Government Energy Efficiency Grants OPEN!

Just before Christmas the State Government announced a $31 million program for energy efficiency audits and upgrades.  The program is now open for applications. 

First, here is what you need to know about the program to see if it is suitable for you:  

  • The program is open to large energy users (over 160MWh/year)
  • Grants will be available for 75% of the cost of audits (up to $15,000) and 50% (up to $75,000) for upgrades such as solar, power factor correction and replacement of equipment. 
  • The deadline for applications is 31 May 2017 but there is a limited amount of funding available for each component so be quick!

Funding for efficiency upgrades is available without having an audit, but you will need a business case justification for the upgrade. The $31 million will not last long so please contact Rachael if your are interested on 0407 775 868 or email or Facebook:
