Strata schemes with a minimum of 50 lots or 6 stories have one month to apply to be part of the City of Sydney’s 2016 Smart Green Apartments scheme.

This scheme sees consultants review the energy and water usage in your building and to develop a plan to implement cost effective improvements to save money and create a greener building. According to the City of Sydney’s website the scheme has already provided benefits to several apartment buildings such as:

  • Aria, a 15-storey apartment building in Waterloo is now saving $61,000 each year through lighting upgrades and adjusting timers on car park exhaust fans.
  • Cleveland Mews, a 66-unit apartment building in Redfern is saving 82% in power use through lighting upgrades and installing heat pumps for the swimming pool and spa.

Applications are open for one month from today. See the link below for more details:
