Business Energy Savers Program

Significant cost savings can be realised through businesses pursuing energy efficiency options. This may include reviewing your electricity tariff, considering the way you use energy or investing in energy saving equipment.

About the program

The $20 million Business Energy Savers Program, an initiative under the Affordable Energy Plan, is providing free energy audits for agricultural customers and large business customers, and co-contributions to fund energy efficiency solutions.

The program provides energy audits for businesses covering a broad range of industry sectors that are vital to our economy, and advice to businesses on how they can reduce their electricity costs by using electricity more efficiently.

It includes the Energy Savers Plus Program Extension (for agricultural businesses) and the Large Customer Adjustment Program (for large electricity users) in rural and regional Queensland.

Energy Savers Plus Program Extension

Under the Energy Savers Plus Program Extension, up to 200 additional audits for agricultural customers are being completed. In addition to this, co-contribution grants of up to $20,000 are available to assist participating businesses to implement recommendations from the audit.

Applications for the Energy Savers Plus Program Extension have closed.

Large Customer Adjustment Program

Expanding on the Large Customer Adjustment Trial, the Large Customer Adjustment Program is delivering additional audits and co-contributions of up to $250,000 to encourage large electricity customers in rural and regional Queensland to implement the audit recommendations.

Applications for the Large Customer Adjustment Program have closed.

Case studies

Different industries tend to use energy in different ways.

The Business Energy Savers Program also provides broader benefits through the development of case studies to assist other businesses wanting to reduce their energy costs by using electricity more efficiently.
