SECCCA will be providing expert advice in the Small Business Energy Saver (SBES) Program to small businesses around Victoria’s south east, as part of Sustainability Victoria’s initiative (on behalf of the Victorian Government). This program will help small businesses economic recovery from COVID-19 hardships via the Victoria Energy Upgrades (VEU) of activities such as:
– Replacing inefficient electric hot water systems.
– Replacing inefficient gas hot water systems.
– Upgrading to efficient room reverse cycle air-conditioners.
– Installing energy-efficient refrigerator display cabinets.
– Installing energy-efficient fridges and freezers.
Rebates available may be able to cover up to 85-95% of the cost of the upgrade providing incentive for energy efficient upgrades.
These upgrades to energy efficient activities will mean Victoria’s communities will be better adapted to climate resilience with less reliance on gas for example. Coupled with this benefit, it is also a win for the small business as utility bills can be significantly lowered which is another key benefit of entering into the SBES Program. Small Business owners can leverage the savings from reduced energy bills to focus on growing their business. SECCCA is proud to work with small businesses that are interested in lowering their carbon footprint. SECCCA will be showcasing ths program through our council members of Port Phillip, Bayside, Kingston, Frankston, Dandenong, Mornington Peninsula, Casey, Cardinia and Bass Coast.
