NSW: Have Your Say

Have your say on barriers to installing sustainability infrastructure for apartments, townhouses and villas in NSW
The City of Sydney invites you to participate in an online survey to share your views and experiences about installing sustainability infrastructure in your building.
By ‘sustainability infrastructure’, we mean solar panels, batteries, smart meters, efficient hot water systems, electric vehicle charging stations and other emerging energy innovations (such as energy management services).
The survey takes 10-15 minutes and will assist the NSW Government to better understand the best ways to remove barriers for owners, tenants and owners corporations wanting to install sustainability infrastructure.
Survey closing 11.59 pm, Sun 9 August. Find out more via this flyer.
By completing it you will be entered into a prize draw for an iPad Air 64GB valued at $779, to be held on the 17th August 2020.
