Update on Sustainability Victoria's Energy Assessment Grant offer
Back in September 2017 we reported on the Victorian Government's Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program. The funding offer has been revised by Sustainability Victoria. Following is an outline of the grants and a link to the government website.
Updated Energy Assessment Grant funding offer (as of 11 April 2018):
Basic energy assessment grant:
Businesses will receive up to $5000 to invest in energy efficiency.
