This initiative would save millions of dollars every year in energy bills and provide a massive stimulus to WA’s renewable and energy efficiency sectors.
Thousands of tonnes of emissions would be saved each year by electrifying the government fleet and retrofitting all government owned and leased buildings for energy efficiency and solar power.
Clean State estimates:
- At least 250-400 jobs would be created in energy efficiency retrofits and solar installations.
- 50-400 jobs in carbon farming and other offset activities created by offsetting unavoidable government emissions.
- 50 full time jobs in a new Climate Action and Jobs department.
