The rebate aims to assist the Community in meeting the Towards Albury 2050 Community Net Zero Target by providing a sustainability rebate to owners and lessees of properties within Albury.
The community during the development of Towards Albury 2050 set two community net zero targets, an interim target of 50% reduction on 2017 levels by 2030 and net zero by 2040. This rebate is to assist our community transition to reduce its carbon emissions. This rebate is an expansion on the previous Community Energy Fund, where the Council provided financial assistance for its leaseholders.
