We are pleased to announce that MICM Property have been awarded the 2011 Carbonetix Managed Property Energy Efficiency Award.
The award recognises the work by MICM Property at Bayview Apartments, Port Melbourne to significantly reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions.
Through a range of measures including LED lighting upgrades, delamping and other projects such as an automatic pool cover, energy consumption has been reduced by an impressive 53%. This has not only reduced running and maintenance costs substantially, but is avoiding 920 tonnes of carbon pollution each year.
The 270 apartments had common area electricity bills of $12,000 per month which has been reduced to $6,000 per month.
This is one of a number of “green apartment” projects being undertaken by MICM Property Owners Corporation Department who are emerging as leaders in this area.
