Farmers and other primary producers looking to slash their electricity bills are invited to attend information sessions set to be held in both Euston and Swan Hill this May.
Hosted by Mallee Sun Solar Bulk-Buy in partnership with Swan Hill Rural City Council, attendees will learn about the experiences of Robinvale Winery and Burkett Orange Farm who have both recently had large solar systems installed through the bulk-buy program with the cost offset by funding from Agriculture Victoria.
To be eligible for a grant – worth $20k to $250k – you must be a Victorian primary producer with total on-farm energy bills of at least $8,000 a year.
The deadline to apply for Agriculture Victoria’s free energy assessment is 15 July 2021, which is the first stage in the grant process.
