The Australian Government has announced a funding program to purchase energy efficient equipment upgrades for small and medium businesses.

The grant opportunity provides small and medium businesses up to $25,000 to replace or upgrade existing equipment to improve energy efficiency and reduce costs. Grants from $10,000 to $25,000 to cover up to 100% of eligible project expenditure. There is a total of $16 million available for this grant opportunity.

Grant funding will be distributed between states and territories based on the distribution of small and medium sized businesses nationally. You are encouraged to refer to Appendix A in the grant opportunity guidelines (attached) for a breakdown of funding in each jurisdiction.
