Small Business Energy Grants

Helping you invest in a more sustainable future

Support will soon be available to help you invest in energy efficient equipment or other improvements for your business.

What is the program?

If you're a small business or not-for-profit organisation, you could soon apply to access grants to help you invest in more energy efficient equipment or make improvements that optimise your energy usage and costs.

As part of the South Australian Government's Economic Recovery Fund, the Small Business Energy Grants program will allow eligible small businesses and not-for-profits to apply for grants ranging from $2,500 up to $50,000 in matched contribution.

This means you could invest in new equipment or make energy efficiency improvements to your business and have the final cost subsidised by up to 50%*.

Applications will open in August 2024 on a first-come-first serve basis to South Australian small businesses and not-for-profits who consume less than 160MWh of electricity per year.

The program will officially open for applications in August 2024.

(*subject to program guidelines, terms, conditions and relevant approvals)
