The City of Canterbury Bankstown is helping homeowners become more energy efficient and save money on their power bills, with a number of free information sessions in June.
Through its partnership with Our Energy Future, a collaboration between Positive Charge and Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC), Council is hosting four Solar for Property Owners and Investors sessions at Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre.
Mayor Khal Asfour encouraged homeowners to come along and learn more about how to go green by installing solar panels on their properties.
"While previous Our Energy Future sessions have discussed solar for all residents, these will focus specifically on property owners, investors, real estate agents and property managers" he said.
"That way, we’re able to go into more detail when it comes to how solar can increase your rental returns and the value of your property. Of course, other details, such as how solar works and what financial rebates are available, will also be covered."
Mayor Asfour said utilising solar energy was a way the City could collectively reduce emissions and create a more sustainable future.
"Domestic energy use across our City is currently above the Sydney average and the regional goal is that, by 2030, we’ll be using a minimum of 30 per cent of energy from renewable sources. The Our Energy Future program can help us achieve that," he said.
"Since we started the program a year ago, we’ve assisted more than 250 residents with assessing their solar energy options through workshops, at Council’s events and online at ourenergyfuture.org."
Information sessions at the Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre will be held on:
