Act Now Before 06 July to Get Free Government Support for Energy Advice to reduce energy costs and cut carbon emissions
After wages, energy consumption is one of the highest costs to operating a business. There are numerous ways to reduce energy costs, but it does require technical expertise and strategic advice from qualified experts, including sustainability consultants and specialist engineers.
This is where the NSW business energy coaching grant comes in.
The NSW Government will pay for experts to visit your sites, provide expert energy support and to develop recommendations for how you can save money through energy efficiency and sustainability projects.
If you own a medium-size business in NSW, or are a chief executive of a NSW-based company, and want to reduce operating costs, there’s a limited time opportunity to take advantage of free government support through the NSW business energy coaching grants for energy coaching services.
The NSW business energy coaching grant is closing in early July, so to take advantage and to avoid missing out, register your interest now with Ecosave (an approved supplier) before 06 July 2020.
How much money is the Government making available?
- If your business spends at least $30,000 on electricity and gas in a year, then you may be eligible for 20 hours of one-on-one coaching with this business energy coaching grant.
Are you eligible for the NSW Business Energy Coaching Grant Program?
- Your business must be in NSW, have an ABN and be registered for GST.

Is there any cost involved in the business energy coaching grant program?
