Invercargill $3.77 million decarbonisation contestable fund now available

A Great South announcement (22 February 2022)

A new $3.77 million government fund is being made available to help Invercargill businesses using fossil fuels for heating to make the change to low-emission energy sources.

Great South is administering the Government Waihōpai / Invercargill Decarbonisation Contestable Fund in partnership with the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA), as part of the New Zealand Government’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund.

Applications for the Contestable Fund are now open and commercial businesses within the Invercargill City Council boundary have until Friday 29 April 2022 to apply.

Great South Strategic Projects General Manager Stephen Canny said it was widely accepted that fossil fuels were not the way forward and this funding made change possible.
