DAIRYFARMERS wanting to save thousands of dollars in a tight season are encouraged to access Sustainability Victoria's Boosting Productivity energy assessment grants.

The application process has been simplified to help the assessment journey flow more smoothly, with a new two-page registration form all that's needed to kick-start the process.

A $2000 or $6000 grant (covering 50 per cent of the cost of an energy assessment) is available to help businesses carry out an energy assessment, and identify and put in place energy improvements, plus a $3000 implementation bonus.
