Strata sustainability program

Posted on Friday 5 April 2024

A program offering energy efficiency advice is delivering cost savings and reducing the carbon footprint for strata units in Mosman.

The Mosman Apartment and Strata Savings Program, offered by Mosman Council in partnership with consultant Wattblock, offers free independent advice to eligible residential apartment buildings to help improve sustainability, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and cut expenses.

Residents of the Braebrook building on Military Road, through their strata committee, have increased the focus on sustainability in common property areas to reduce running costs and achieve a lower carbon footprint.

A program review made recommendations on lighting, water and electricity supply, which the Braebrook committee acted on over an 18-month period, most recently installing solar panels on the building’s roof in March.

Other projects at Braebrook have included upgrading lights in common areas of the building from fluorescent to LED systems and installing motion sensors.

Carbon monoxide sensors were fitted to the building’s car park fan, to run when required rather than 24 hours a day by default. This has saved many hours of electricity consumption and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
