The Hodgman Liberal Government’s On-Farm Energy Audit and Capital Grant Program will be fast-tracked following a successful launch of the initiative in Tasmania last year.
So far more than $225 000 in grants have been provided to 29 local farm businesses, helping Tasmanian farmers save thousands of dollars each year in energy charges. The funding allocation for 2019-20 has now been brought forward into this financial year to support the heightened level of interest.
