Dairy Energy Efficiency Program

​​The Tasmanian Government's Dairy Energy Efficiency Program has now commenced.

​Eligible Tasmanian dairy farmers are able to access up to two thirds of the cost of energy audits and up to half of the costs of approved capital infrastructure to a combined total of $20,000.

The Tasmanian Government has made $250,000 available to fund grants of up to $20,000 per applicant. 

The funding allows farmers to engage a qualified professional to review their energy use, identify savings and then to implement recommended energy efficiency measures, including for capital costs. 

The Program is being administered by the AgriGrowth Tasmania Division of the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment on behalf of the Tasmanian Government. 

The Scheme is now open to receive applications and will close at 5.00pm on Friday 19 June 2020 or when the Program funding allocation is fully allocated.


Guidelines have been developed to provide information about the Program, including eligibility criteria, application and assessment processes and other important information.
