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 is for the installation of new energy technologies in public schools over the next 4 years, including more rooftop solar systems. This investment supports the existing Solar Schools Program and the trial Virtual Power Plant battery program.
The Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund (SCETF) will provide STEM learning opportunities for students and teachers to gain new skills and understand the benefits of renewable energy and technologies.
The fund aligns with the Western Australian Climate Change Policy.
For more information about the launch of the fund, read the Blueprint unveiled for future-proof green energy schools WA government media statement.
The first stage of round 3 supports schools to reduce energy use with LED lighting upgrades. Of the 60 successful schools, 32 are regional and 28 are metropolitan.
For a full list of schools, refer to the More WA schools to go greener with clean energy upgrades WA Government media statement.
The second stage of round 3 will help staff better manage energy use through a sustainability tool, currently in development.
