While federal and state governments are doing their best to delay the transition to solar power its good to see the City of Melbourne launching an incentive program for apartment building common area power. Here is an extract from the program:
"Rebates are now on offer to residential strata buildings in City of Melbourne to:
* install solar electricity systems to power common areas.
* undertake lighting upgrades that improve energy efficiency in common areas.
"Rebates of up to 50% of the project cost to a maximum value of $3,000 are available. City of Melbourne can also provide some project support and access to technical advice.
"Round 1 of the Smart Blocks Rebate closes on 31 December 2014 and funds are limited so start your project today!"
Going Solar is based in the City of Melbourne boundary and we can help with these sorts of projects so contact Stephen on 9348 1000
