TagEnergy inks 2nd PPA for Golden Plains Wind Farm
Equinix will procure 20% of energy and green certificates from the project’s first stage.
TagEnergy entered a power purchase agreement (PPA) with digital infrastructure company Equinix to contract 20% of the energy and green certificates produced by the first stage of Golden Plains Wind Farm.
In a statement, the company said this is the second PPA for the project under construction following the deal with Snowy Hydro to purchase 40% of energy and green certificates from the project’s first stage which costs $2b, with a 257-megawatt capacity.
“The significant interest in Golden Plains Wind Farm from major industry players reflects the quality and location of our project, and their confidence in our ability to deliver large-scale renewables projects,” said TagEnergy Managing Partner, Australia, Andrew Riggs.
Meanwhile, Equinix said the deal, its first long-term PPA in the Asia Pacific, will help the company achieve renewable targets across its 17 International Business Exchange data centres across Australia.
