Sign up to the Small Business
Energy Saver program.

Your business can reduce its environmental impact, better manage energy use and reduce bills.


An inefficient system costs you money, and it costs the environment.

You can reduce your small businesses running costs and greenhouse gas emissions through Sustainability Victoria’s Small Business Energy Saver Program.

Indigo Power is delivering the program in partnership with GV Community Energy as the Hume Region intermediary. We can assist small businesses to upgrade eligible equipment at a heavily discounted price and, in some cases, at no cost.

We can help you figure out whether you have eligible equipment so you can take advantage of this offer today.

We’re here to support you with the Small Business Energy Saver Program

The Program provides incentives for small businesses to perform energy upgrades. Each business is eligible for up to $2000 on top of the individual benefits of the Victorian Energy Upgrades program. You can take advantage of both of these programs resulting in large upfront reductions in the price of energy-efficient upgrades.

The Victorian Government has added a new rebate to the generous subsidies, that are already available, to encourage the replacement of energy-inefficient systems.

This is a major opportunity for small businesses to invest in energy-efficient systems at a heavily discounted price. For you, this means low upfront costs and immediate savings.

We are here to help local businesses in our region make the most of this opportunity; allowing you to save money, reduce climate pollution, and contribute to a healthy electricity network.
