Alinta Energy enters into 130MW offtake agreement for Badgingarra Wind Farm

22/02/2017
Alinta Energy today announced that it has entered into a long-term (12 year) offtake agreement with APA Group that will underpin the construction of the 130MW Badgingarra Wind Farm. The agreement includes the purchase of all of the energy along with the Large-scale Renewable Generation Certificates (LGCs) generated by the wind farm.
 
The Badgingarra Wind Farm will be located in Western Australia on a site that is well known for its strong wind resource and proximity to suitable transmission connection to the South West Interconnected System (SWIS).
 
Financial close is expected in mid-2017; subject to conditions precedent including finalisation of a transmission connection agreement with Western Power.
 
Jeff Dimery, Alinta Energy’s CEO said, “This offtake agreement is another step in expanding Alinta’s renewables position. The Badgingarra Wind Farm output will complement our flexible gas generation fleet and expand on our ability to provide clean, affordable and reliable energy for our West Australian customers. This agreement complements a range of other exciting renewable generation opportunities being progressed by Alinta Energy. These opportunities have us placed to grow in an Australian energy industry that is working towards a low carbon future.
 
“We are also very pleased to expand and continue to develop our existing relationship with APA.”
