25% rebate on solar pumps for NSW graziers

In February 2019 the NSW Government has announced a generous rebate to fund one-off rebates to eligible primary producers for the costs associated with the purchase and installation of on-farm water infrastructure that addresses animal welfare needs and improves resilience to drought. This rebate applies to the purchase and installation of water infrastructure for livestock including water pumps and associated power supply, including solar.

The rebate is 25% of the total cost of the project (including purchase, delivery and labour) to engage a supplier to install water infrastructure for animal welfare needs. The maximum that can be claimed is $25,000 per farm.

To apply for this rebate, you must be a property owner, share-farmer or lessee in the grazing industry (sole trader, partnership, trust or private company) and your farm has, or is at risk of, an animal welfare need. This is especially relevant to properties where water is currently being carted or about to be carted onto your property to supply livestock where water supply has run out or your property could be reasonably expected to run out of water. It can also be used to help ensure that stock water is available in the future during adverse seasonal conditions.
