Congratulations to Bateman Primary School – new solar panels are coming your way!
The new solar panels will help these local schools to save on their power bills, lower carbon emissions, transition towards a cleaner energy future and teach local kids about renewable technologies.
Our local Bateman schools are among 96 other schools across WA who will receive solar panels under the latest round of the Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund.
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.
