The Agriculture Energy Investment Plan Extension


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.
