Subsidised energy audits available for NSW hotels

April 8, 2014 Headline News, Hotel News No Comments Email Email

egtmedia59The Office of Environment & Heritage NSW, for a limited time, is offering larger hotels (those that spend over AUD 60,000 annually on electricity, the opportunity to undertake a level 2 energy audit, capped at a AUD 5000 contribution from themselves.

This is a significant departure from the existing program that offers 50% subsidised energy efficiency investigations.

The audit would provide a detailed financial business case to support identified projects, tailored to the properties needs at a time when electricity prices have already increased dramatically in the past five years, and gas prices are forecast to rise exponentially as domestic production is sold overseas. Coles-Training_250X250px

The audit will also investigate opportunities for properties to utilise the NSW Energy Savings Scheme to gain additional payback through the generation of Energy Saving Certificates (ESCs).

The scope of the audit can include a NABERs rating, itself valued between AUD 4000 to AUD 8000.

The usual AUD 500 application fee will be waived during this period.

Previous businesses engaged with the Energy Saver program have on average identified electricity and cost savings of 23%, and are saving over $13 million per year on power bills.

The offer is open until the end of April.

Interested parties should contact:
