Regional communities will benefit from more secure, affordable and reliable power under the Australian Government’s $50 million program to support feasibility studies into microgrids.
The first round of the Regional and Remote Communities Reliability Fund is now open to applications from across Australia. Up to $20 million of grants will be awarded through this first round.
The grants will fund community organisations, electricity distribution businesses and other interested entities to undertake feasibility studies on the viability of microgrid solutions in off-grid and fringe-of-grid locations.
Round one applications close on 21 November 2019.
