Agriculture Victoria has recently rolled out on-farm energy Tier 1 grants as part of the Victorian Government's $30 million Agriculture Energy Investment Plan.
The grants will provide support to farmers to replace energy inefficient equipment, install more energy efficient systems and enable own-generation capacity.
Farmers are encouraged to apply early, as grants are available to eligible primary producers until March 2020 or until available funding is exhausted (whichever comes first).
Any farmer wanting to access one of the grants needs to have an approved on-farm energy assessment.
Farmers can find out more by visiting the Agriculture Victoria Website: agriculture.vic.gov.au/agenergy The website includes information about the free on-farm energy assessments, the grants and how to apply (see attached document).
