Sustainable Living at Home


Climate Clever

Council is thrilled to partner with Climate Clever to help our community reduce their carbon footprint and save money on utility bills! Climate Clever is a web-based platform that can help you to understand your energy, water and waste consumption patterns and create a personalised action plan to reduce your carbon footprint.

Research suggests that households can save at least 10% on annual energy costs by making simple behaviour changes. Council is giving away 200 annual subscriptions to residents on a first come, first served basis.

Lane Cove has resolved to being at the forefront of community expectations when it’s comes to sustainability and was the 50th LGA in Australia to declare a #ClimateEmergency.

Now Lane Cove is providing locals with tools and data to help them make a measurable impact!

Simply visit Climate Clever and select “Get Started” to access the program and get ready to lower your bills, along with your footprint.

Energy Efficiency at Home

With almost 60% of residential energy emissions coming from electricity use, Council wants to help you save energy and money in your home. We’ve compiled a series of short videos on how to be more energy efficient and in turn save money on your heating and cooling, hot water, insulation, standby power, solar and batteries. There’s also a video on how to read your electricity bill to ensure you are getting value for money. Click on the links below to find out more.
