Halogen downlights are not only an environmental hazard but can also pose a fire risk if not installed properly. See the Commonwealth Government publication ‘Sanctuary sustainable living with style’ for more information.
Did you know that AusIndustry (an Australian Government Initiative) have grants ranging from $50,000 to $500,000 for retro-fitting and retro-commissioning of buildings to reduce base building energy consumption? This includes projects involving common area lighting. For more information see the Green Building Fund Fact Sheet or the AusIndustry website.
The NSW Green Business Program provides $30 million over five years for projects that will save water and energy in business operations in NSW. You could use a grant for energy saving lighting. For more information go to the NSW Dept of Environment and Climate Change website .
