Small businesses are being encouraged to apply for an energy efficiency grant.

More than 2500 of theses grants are available as part of the Federal Government's $50 million dollar Energy Efficiency Communities Program.

Eligible small businesses will be able to claim grants of up to $20,000 and high-energy using businesses up to $25,000.

In addition to this the $5 million Solar Communities Program will provide grants of up to $12,500 for eligible community organisations for small-scale solar and battery projects.

This funding could be used to fund new solar PV, solar hot water and battery systems.
