The Minister for Industry and Innovation, Greg Combet, and the Federal Member for Bendigo, Steve Gibbons, congratulated the Victorian Carpet Company Pty Ltd for seizing a clean energy future and recognizing the opportunities that pricing carbon presented.
"Victoria Carpets in partnership with the Gillard Government is investing in its Bendigo operations and helping to reduce carbon pollution and energy costs," said Mr. Gibbons.
"The company will more than match the Government's contribution and the improvements will see it reduce carbon emissions intensity by 19.8 per cent."
The grant will allow Victoria Carpet Company to install advanced LED technology lighting and high-efficiency heaters in the manufacturing areas of its Bendigo spinning mill. Skylight panels and light controllers will also be installed to automate lighting levels.
"There are a lot of smart things that business can do to reduce emissions and save costs," said Mr. Gibbons
"While Labor is working with local manufacturers the Liberal Party is out there scaring them and threatening to rip this co-investment program away."
"The Clean Technology Investment Programs are part of the Government's plan for a Clean Energy Future. They deliver practical help for businesses to become more efficient, more competitive and more sustainable," Mr. Combet said.
"I encourage local manufactures, food processers and foundries to access the support the Government is providing through $1 billion to the Clean Technology Investment Programs."
The $200 million Clean Technology Innovation Program is also open to provide opportunities for businesses to develop and commercialize innovative ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
