Canberra has been powered by 100% renewable electricity for over a year but we’re not resting on that achievement.
We’re committed to meaningful climate action to make the ACT carbon neutral by 2045, and we are targeting our next big emitting sectors or transport and gas use, while helping households with the transition.
In this year’s ACT Budget, we’re investing in programs that make a difference to the power bills of Canberra households, while also creating new and secure jobs.
These programs include:
All of these create jobs for Canberrans.
The suite of renewable policies took to the election and have now funded in this Budget, are expected to create an estimated 2,000 jobs in the ACT.
Creating sustainable new local jobs that will drive down emissions and reduce power bills is fundamental to our economic recovery.
This is a vision for the future of Canberra, the home of the jobs of the future, training our future leaders in renewable technologies.
