Smart Units rebates

Keen to help the environment and reduce your bills?

Residents in apartment units use approximately 25% more energy per person than stand alone homes or town houses.

Our rebates are designed to support apartment blocks where they need it most to reduce their energy/water use. Whether you're a unit owner, strata manager, building manager or on the executive committee, we want to hear from you. 

if you have any questions, please contact Anuj Dhir, Sustainability Officer on adhir@krg.nsw.gov.au or phone 9424 0172.

Rebates available in 2022-23

The program offers a maximum of $6000 in rebates to apartment blocks. Applications open until funds are exhausted.
