The Business Energy Savers Program is an initiative under the Affordable Energy Plan, providing free energy audits for agricultural customers and large business customers, and co-contributions to fund energy efficiency upgrades.
By making simple changes and upgrades, business can realise their significant cost savings from pursuing energy efficiency options. In some cases, upgrades/changes can deliver cost reductions up to 30% with paybacks as short as 1 year.
Business working within a broad range of industry sectors can access the program, receiving a free audit and advice on how to effectively reduce electricity costs by using energy more efficiently.
The program includes the Energy Savers Plus Program Extension (for agricultural businesses) and the Large Customer Adjustment Program (for large electricity users).
The Business Energy Savers Program also provides broader benefits to businesses through the development of case studies to assist other buisnessses wanting to reduce their energy costs by using electricity more efficiently.
