Powerline replacement fund

Powerline replacement fund

The powerline replacement fund helps provide safer electricity infrastructure in areas of highest bushfire risk.

The $200 million State Government fund is administered by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. It is directed at replacing both high voltage and private overhead electric lines in highest priority local government areas, which includes Indigo Shire.

Don't let a powerline on your property be the one to start a bushfire.

To find out if you are eligible for funding, and to download information on what is required to lodge a submission, visit www.energy.vic.gov.au/electricity/powerline-replacement-fund. The website has important information for applicants and for registered electrical contractors.

Hurry, applications for funding close on Wednesday 28 February 2018.
