New renewable energy partnership supports WA’s decarbonisation target

April 13 2023

We’re excited to be partnering with an established local renewable energy company to support Western Australia’s acceleration to decarbonisation. Our new joint venture with West Australian Alternative Energy (WAAE) brings together significant renewable energy system expertise.

Horizon Power’s 50 percent interest in the company supports the WA Government’s commitment to achieving an 80 percent reduction in Government emissions by 2030.

The investment will help us address the energy sector’s wide-ranging supply chain issues, which are having an impact on our ability to deliver solar and battery projects.

The partnership is expected to further support us in meeting our carbon emissions reduction target across our service area.

‘The new partnership is a positive step forward on our decarbonisation journey, supporting the State Government and Horizon Power’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions,’ commented Energy Minister Bill Johnston.

‘The partnership will help tackle the supply chain issues and workforce constraints being felt across the country and support the acceleration of renewable energy solutions in our State.’
