These measures will ease cost of living pressures by encouraging less electricity and water usage, which will flow on to their bills.

The NSW Government wants to make it easier for strata schemes to unlock the potential of sustainable energy and infrastructure within apartment complexes.

It proposes to lower the voting threshold from 75 to 50 per cent to get energy efficient projects passed. 

“We know that apartment blocks are lagging behind in the uptake of green energy like solar panels, battery storage and electric vehicle charging points,” Minister for Better Regulation Kevin Anderson said.

“This important change will remove a huge barrier in strata schemes getting sustainability projects over the line.

“Importantly, in time these measures will ease cost of living pressures by encouraging less electricity and water usage, which will flow on to their bills.”
