CEFC provided AU$120 million through the National Australia Bank (NAB) to support a major investment programme to help Australian businesses cut their energy and operating costs and lift business performance. The NAB’s AU$120 million CEFC-supported program, which provides 0.7% pa off equipment finance rate on qualifying assets for the life of the loan, is available across a broad commercial base, with a particular emphasis on agribusiness and regional Australia. The finance supports small and large-scale projects of up to AU$5 million, with the benefits of the CEFC investment flowing directly through to the business operators. Equipment, loan, hire purchase or finance lease options are available as well as tailored repayments to suit cash flows. Typically no deposit is required up front.
