Clean energy funding helps 96 more public schools turn green

  • 96 additional schools to receive solar panels through second round of the McGowan Government’s $44.6 million Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund
  • Funding further expands clean-energy solutions in WA schools
  • All public schools were given the opportunity to apply to reduce their energy costs and carbon emissions
  • Almost 100 more schools are set to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs with support from the McGowan Government’s $44.6 million Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund.

    Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery today released the list of schools that successfully applied for round two funding, which builds on the 84 schools that successfully applied for funding through round one, which were announced earlier this year.

    Schools from across the State were successful in the latest round – 60 schools in the metropolitan area, and 36 in the regions.

    Under round two of the Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund, WA public schools were invited to apply for solar panels to reduce their environmental footprint and energy costs, with the criteria extended to include schools that already have a limited coverage of solar panels.

    As stated by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery:

    “The McGowan Government is committed to making changes and funding new initiatives that reduce the impact that schools have on the environment.

    “The $44.6 million Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund aims to boost installation of clean energy solutions in WA public schools, to lower their carbon emissions and reduce one of their major costs.

    “This latest funding allocation will set almost 100 public schools up to benefit from innovative solar technology.

    “I look forward to continuing the rollout of clean energy technologies in our public schools, which is an important piece of the State’s broader transition towards a low carbon future.”
