Solar Power for Sporting Clubs Program

Overview

The Tasmanian Government is committed to increasing opportunities for all Tasmanians to participate in sport, advancing our renewable energy capability and supporting community action.

During the 2021 State Election the Tasmanian Government committed $10 million for Tasmanian sporting clubs to apply for grant of up to $20 000. The funding was made available to approved applicants for the purchase of an accredited solar power system to reduce electricity running costs to the club.
