Perth Solar Cities projects EOI
Posted in Models by Devin Maeztri on April 6th, 2009
The Federal Environment Minister Peter Garrett has committed $13.9 million in Commonwealth funding to Australia’s seventh Solar City, Perth. “The Perth Solar City project is expected to deliver carbon pollution reductions of more than 15,000 tonnes – equivalent to taking 3,500 large vehicles off the road – and cut energy use equivalent to that of 3,200 homes.”
Perth Solar Cities Project is led by a consortium. SunPower as one of six organisations on the consortium is looking for proposals of photovoltaic solar projects above 30kWp on iconic/highly visible buildings to nominate to the steering committee.
Projects should include elements of energy efficiency, and demand management as well as solar. While preference will be given to projects that are located in the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council area, iconic/highly visible buildings that do not fall in this region will also be considered.
Successful projects meeting the Solar Cities selection criteria will then be recommended to the Federal Government. Subsidies ranging from 30% to 40% will be available to successful applicants.
