Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund

Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund

The $44.6 million Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund demonstrates our commitment to renewable electricity and will reduce school’s energy costs and carbon emissions.

Funding will go towards the installation of new energy technologies in public schools including more rooftop solar systems in public schools over the next four years. This investment supports the existing Solar Schools Program and the trial Virtual Power Plant battery program.

The Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund will provide STEM learning opportunities for students and teachers to gain new skills and understand the benefits of renewable energy and technologies.

Principals will inform their parents and school community of any opportunities for the school to apply for funding.

Together, we can contribute to a healthier planet and make a difference.

The Fund aligns with the Western Australian Climate Change Policy.
