Money for a cleaner energy at selected schools and hospitals

From Morning Report, 6:50 am on 29 January 2020

The government is this morning announcing money for upgrades at schools and hospitals so they can move to cleaner energy.

Up to $4.8 million dollars will be available for eight schools to upgrade their old coal-fired boilers, and up to $5.2 million for upgrades at two hospitals.

It's the first confirmed spending from a $200 million fund aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of the state sector.
