Helping more small businesses with their energy costs

The Tasmanian Government is providing a second round of $1000 one-off grants to support eligible businesses with energy costs.

Small business is one of Tasmania’s biggest employers but was also one of the sectors hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The second round of grants is available for embedded network customers who get their utilities provided directly from their landlord or building owner. This might include shops in a shopping centre, tenants in managed office accommodation or leaseholders at business estates.

The guidelines for round two have been expanded to ensure even more people can benefit, with sole traders who don’t employ staff now able to apply for the grant.

Applications are now open and close at 12pm, Monday 21 December 2020.

Applicants can apply for the grant from the Business Tasmania website at and can contact Business Tasmania on 1800 440 026 for more information.
