Fee-free ratings offer for small shopping centres

02 Mar 2021

NABERS is excited to be launching a new offer exclusively for small shopping centre owners.

Funded by the Australian Government, this offer means energy ratings are now FREE for first time shopping centre rating customers across Australia for a limited time only.

The offer includes waiving BOTH the NABERS Energy rating certification fee ($1,250 including GST) AND a significant financial contribution towards the associated Assessor fees for small shopping centres (GLAR must be greater than 5,000m2 and less than or equal to 15,000m2), up to $3,000ex GST.

This project will support retail businesses with a zero-cost opportunity to conduct their first NABERS Energy rating to measure their environmental performance.

The aim of the initiative is to speed up the transition to net zero emissions buildings, with a specific focus on energy efficiency. The offer is targeting Energy Starters – buildings that are just getting started with sustainability and have not rated with NABERS Energy before.

How to get your free rating

Talk to a NABERS Assessor, see below or contact NABERS for more details on how to submit an application to this offer.

The initial pilot offer will run until 30 June 2021 and eligible ratings must be lodged by 31 August 2021. If the offer is successful, more rounds may be considered in future.

There is a cap of 20 sites per state in order to guarantee fair coverage nationwide.
