Renew Economy:

Construction of a 414MW wind farm in central western New South Wales will go ahead later this year after the huge project secured an offtake deal with federal government-owned gen-tailer, Snowy Hydro.

The deal between project developer CWP Renewables and Snowy Hydro will see Snowy purchase 200MW of the output of the Uungula wind farm and renewable energy certificates for a 15-year term.

The massive project, which has secured development approval, is now gearing up for construction 14km east of Wellington, in the New South Wales central-west Renewable Energy Zone.

“At 414 megawatts, Uungula will be our largest wind farm to date and provide enough clean electricity to power more than 200,000 homes,” said CWP Renewables CEO Jason Willoughby on Tuesday.

“It’s great to have Snowy Hydro on-board as a foundation offtaker for the project, which in turn helps us continue to develop our pipeline of renewable projects.”
