Description:

Community Solar Grants 2019 is a closed non-competitive grant opportunity. Eligible applicants will be invited to apply. The Energy Efficient Communities Program program will assist businesses and community organisations to improve energy efficiency practices and technologies and better manage energy consumption to reduce their power bills.

There are two streams to the program:

  • Community Organisations Stream
  • Business Stream

The Community Organisations Stream will be delivered through separate grant opportunities:

  • Community Solar Grants 2019
  • Community Energy Efficiency and Solar Grants 2020.

This grant opportunity is for Community Solar Grants 2019, which will invite community organisations to apply for grants, in line with 2019 election commitments, to undertake energy generation and storage projects, specifically:

  • new solar hot water heaters or air source hot water heat pumps.
  • The minimum grant amount is $1,000
  • The maximum grant amount is $12,500.
