High performing housing
Not-for-profit community housing provider SGCH is seeking to deliver approximately 500 high-performing energy efficient homes with CEFC finance. The new homes will be a mix of social and affordable housing units in south and south-western Sydney, delivering more sustainable, affordable housing for low to moderate income families.
CEFC commitment: up to $170 million
New homes for regional NSW
Families in three regional NSW cities – Bathurst Dubbo and Orange – will benefit from 220 new highly energy efficient homes for low income families. A significant portion of existing Housing Plus dwellings in regional NSW will also undergo clean energy retrofits so that they require less energy to operate for day-to-day living.
