  • Windsor on Kent, a 32-storey apartment building in the city reduced common area energy use by 34% in 6 months.
  • Hyde Park Towers, a 32-storey apartment building on Elizabeth Street reduced energy use by 50% and saved $655,000.
  • Highgate, a 31-storey apartment building in Millers Point reduced annual energy use by 21% and saved $56,359.
