Lands $3 billion from CEFC to expand grid and deliver stunning renewable plans

Western Australia has secured $3 billion in federal funds to build out new transmission projects to support the stunning renewable energy plans of its mining giants in the north of the state and by green industries in the south.

The deal between the federal and state Labor governments – signed by prime minister Anthony Albanese and premier Roger Cook in Perth on Tuesday – has been described as a landmark agreement.

The funds, part of the federal government’s $20 billion Rewiring the Nation program which is being funneled through the Clean Energy Finance Corp, will seek to boost the state’s main grid in the south, and the north-west grid in the Pilbara, where the huge iron ore mines are seeking a path to zero emissions power.
