Western Australia’s energy sector is one of the best places to start if we want to create thousands of jobs and drive down carbon emissions.
It makes sense for Western Australia to be utilising our incredible sun and wind resources – we have some of the best in the world. Western Australia could become powered almost entirely by renewables by 2030. In order to do this, we need leadership from the Government and a commitment to a renewable energy target.
Our local schools could become energy hubs, saving millions of dollars a year in power bills and providing power to communities at times when they need it most.
At a time where all other states and territories are embracing the clean energy transition, WA is lagging behind. We are the only state with no renewable energy target. This is our opportunity to show the rest of Australia what a renewable superpower looks like and harness the economic benefits and renewable potential of our state.
