Climate Change Fund Annual Report 2011 - 2012
This is the fifth Annual Report for the NSW Climate Change Fund, covering the 2011-2012 financial year of operations.
In 2011-2012, the Fund expended $331 million to help households, businesses, government and communities become more sustainable by saving water, power and greenhouse gas emissions as well as money off utility bills. The Fund also stimulated investment in renewable and clean energy technologies including meeting the costs of the Solar Bonus Scheme and reducing the risk of extreme bushfire events as a result of climate change through the Enhanced Bushfire Management Program.
To 30 June 2012, more than 19.8 billion litres of water, 917,000 megawatt hours of electricity, 964,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions and $206 million off water and power bills are saved each year, as well as 66,000 kilowatts of peak demand. On average, every $1 the Fund invests in energy and water saving initiatives across all programs delivers $4.80 in utility bill savings.
