Case study: Cairns West State School – Advancing Clean Energy Schools Program
Cairns West State School participated in the Department of Education’s Advancing Clean Energy Schools (ACES) program. The ACES program is reducing energy costs by installing solar and/or energy efficiency measures at more than 800 state schools over three years.
The $168.1 million ACES program will deliver a contribution of approximately 61.4 megawatts of solar to the Queensland Government’s 50% renewable energy sources goal by 2030. This will help to reduce emissions, address climate change, create new jobs and diversify the economy.
