Small Business Energy Saver Program
Sustainability Victoria’s Small Business Energy Saver Program is offering rebates to cover up to between 85 and 95 per cent of the cost of upgrades to more energy efficient equipment, costing less to run.
- replacing inefficient hot water systems
- upgrading room reverse cycle air-conditioners
- installing energy efficient refrigerator display cabinets, fridges and freezers
- other energy efficient items.
We have partnered with South East Councils Climate Change Alliance (SECCCA) on this intiative. SECCCA will work directly with small businesses in Port Phillip to identify eligible equipment in your business.

You could be missing out on potential customers if your business isn't accessible.
In Australia, one in five people experience disability. Like everyone else, people with disabilities want to buy goods and services, and participate in community life with their family and friends.
In creating an accessible environment within your business, you can broaden your customer base and increase economic benefits. Accessibility pays dividends and makes good business sense.
