The Victorian Government’s Agriculture Energy Investment Plan (AEIP) has been extended to help more Victorian farmers improve their energy efficiency and overall productivity.
Applications for free on-farm energy assessments are now open until 15 July 2021. Following an assessment, farmers may apply for either;
- up to $20,000 through the Fast Track Rebate to purchase items recommended through their on-farm energy assessment; or
- Tier 1 and Tier 2 grants (worth between $20,000 – $50,000 and $50,000 – $250,000) for larger projects.
Farmers are encouraged to apply early due to the popularity of the program.
To date, almost 800 on-farm energy assessments have been completed under the AEIP, valued at almost $7 million and over 450 grants totalling $22 million have been awarded.
