ACT Strata to benefit from energy efficiency rebates

ACT Strata energy efficiency rebates – $5000 on offer

Known as the Actsmart Business Energy and Water Program, ACT Strata corporations are invited and encouraged to apply for a rebate on the upgrading of inefficient common area lighting.

Conversion to LED provides saving on electricity bills and improves lighting levels in stairwells, carparks and corridors. This could be the end to the never ending task of changing light globes and better still it’s a win for the environment.

To qualify, the owners corporation must be operating in the ACT and employ a maximum of 10 full-time equivalent staff. It is unlikely that this would disqualify any ACT strata corporation.

“Over 230 residential and commercial owners corporations have already taken part in the Actsmart Business Energy and Water program over the last two years and are now enjoying the benefits,” said Lara Lloyd from Actsmart.
