About CitySwitch

The CitySwitch program is a partnership of the Cities of Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and others, and has been provided free of charge to office-based businesses in the City of Adelaide since 2008.

Continued delivery of CitySwitch in partnership with State Government is a specific commitment of the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Action Plan 2016-2021.

CitySwitch NABERS rebates

As part of the CitySwitch program, the City of Adelaide is offering a rebate on the cost of a NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System) Energy rating. The rebate is 50 per cent of the cost of the assessment to a maximum value of $2,500.

To be eligible, signatories must be located within the city centre and North Adelaide and the accredited NABERS rating be completed no more than 12 months prior to Council receiving the rebate application form.

In addition, a 50 per cent discount on the NABERS administration fee (handled by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage) is also available to all CitySwitch participants.

CitySwitch annual reporting and awards season

September/October is the annual CitySwitch Progress Reporting Period. This is a time when we support businesses to measure their performance over the previous 12 months.

In November the CitySwitch Awards are held. They are a celebration of signatory businesses accomplishments and achievements over the past year, both at a state and national level.
