Generator Grant

Provides financial support to purchase generators for families and businesses in the event of power disruption.

Grants of up to $500 for affected households and $4,000 grants for affected businesses and primary produces cut off from power during the 2022 River Murray Flood.

The River Murray regions include the Alexandrina Council, Berri Barmera Council, Coorong District Council, District Council of Karoonda East Murray, District Council of Loxton Waikerie, Mid Murray Council, Murray Bridge Council, Pastoral Unincorporated Area and Renmark Paringa Council.

The funding will be available for households and businesses that receive notification from SA Power Networks (SAPN) that they will lose their power and purchase a power generator to enable them to safely remain at their property during the flood event.

This will help households in affected areas to keep up-to-date with daily announcements, maintain food safety, and stay safe by keeping the lights on, while businesses can continue their operations and keep business-critical infrastructure switched on.

To be eligible for this grant, households and businesses will need:
– To show a notice from SA Power Networks indicating the interruption of power
– A tax receipt for the purchase of a suitable power generator
– To provide a current Australian Business Number (ABN) if claiming for a business.
