Sydney Airport signs deal to purchase power from CWP's Crudine Ridge wind farm

Sydney Airport has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Grassroots Renewable Energy to purchase power from the 135MW Crudine Ridge wind farm located 45km south of Mudgee in New South Wales.

The power purchase agreement (PPA) is part of the airport’s renewables transition plan and its effort to reduce its carbon footprint by 50% by 2025.

Sydney Airport will receive up to 75% of its current electricity from the wind project under the MoU, which combines renewables with firming generation.

The airport will be supplied with wind power from the Crudine Ridge Wind Farm contracted through Origin, which will provide baseload firming generation when the wind is not blowing enough to meet the airport’s load.
