Government rebates for the installation of Geothermal Heating & Cooling are available in regional Victoria through the Four Seasons Energy Pilot Program.
Feasibility studies: Funding will be provided for community groups, councils and businesses for feasibility studies into using these new energy technologies in comparison to other combined heating and cooling options.
Capital costs: The Victorian Government will support the full capital cost of installing GeoExchange systems at public sites such as secondary schools, community centres, police stations, retirement housing, hospitals, fire stations and libraries, and 50% of the capital cost of installing the system at private demonstration sites.
Proposed projects will be initiated by a public or private organisation that would support the project up to a period of five years after its completion by allowing the energy use to be monitored.
