Lighting upgrades and solar power

Council is working with local businesses and community organisations to upgrade lights and install solar power to help you save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As a Hobsons Bay business you are eligible for a subsidy of up to $5,000* to reduce the payback period of your project!

The process involves:

  • Assessing your energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and financial savings
  • Providing a quotation
  • Quality customer service throughout the whole process

* Funding is available for 10% of project costs (lighting and solar) up to $5,000 per business. The subsidy is calculated after all other discounts (e.g. VEET & STCs) have been applied. A minimum subsidy of $500 per business is available. Funding is limited and only available until fully allocated.

“This energy savings program has really been a “no brainer” since it is great for the environment, has a very quick pay back and provides such an improvement of the working conditions and appearance of our business” says Dietmar Hildebrand, CEO, Australian Fluid Handling.
