The City of Melbourne, in alliance with the Smart Blocks program, is offering an incentive of up to $3000 to inner-city residential building owners for the installation of solar panels and incentive to switch to low-energy lightbulbs.
High-rise apartments have been targeted due to high-energy uses in common areas such as foyers, corridors and pools and the Smart Blocks program has already seen 63 of Melbourne’s 1262 residential buildings make the switch. The program aims to reduce carbon emissions and make Melbourne carbon-neutral by 2020.
