Cutting energy costs for hotels in Maranoa

Small and medium hotels across Maranoa are receiving support from the Coalition Government to cut their energy costs so they can invest in their business, employ more Australians, and get ahead.

32 hotels across Maranoa will share in a total $748,444 through the Government’s $10.2 million Hotel Energy Uplift Program.

Maranoa MP David Littleproud said the grants would help fund projects that will provide genuine and lasting energy savings and reduce operating costs for local hotels.

“These grants will help local operators to save on energy costs, putting more money back in their pockets and supporting the creation of new jobs, including for local electricians, carpenters, engineers, and plumbers,” Mr Littleproud said.

“Projects include upgrading to more energy efficient air-conditioning, refrigeration and equipment, improving the building through double glazing and insulation, carrying out energy audits or installing energy monitoring equipment.

“Australia’s hotel industry was among the hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic, particularly in regional areas, and the Government is committed to helping local operators get back on their feet.

“Over 85 per cent of the grants awarded will go to hotels in regional or remote Australia, providing a significant boost to our regions. This is good news for tourist destinations welcoming back visitors after COVID-19-related restrictions.”

The Hotel Energy Uplift Program was announced in the 2020-21 Budget and is part of the Government’s $1.9 billion investment in new energy technologies which will create new jobs now and into the future, reduce emissions and ensure all Australians have access to reliable and affordable energy.

Hotels, motels and serviced apartments with up to 99 rooms were eligible to receive grants under the program.
