Crudine Ridge Wind Farm

135 MW under construction in Central West NSW.

Delivered by world leaders in renewable energy.

Construction of the project has commenced and will be fully operational by early 2021.

Crudine Ridge Wind Farm is under construction with completion expected in early 2021.

Crudine Ridge Wind Farm, located 45km south of Mudgee in NSW, will be constructed by GE Renewable Energy and Zenviron, who will install 37 x GE 3.63MW wind turbines which will reach a height of 160  m. The transmission grid connection will be constructed, owned and operated by Transgrid.

Once operational, Crudine Ridge Wind Farm will provide enough power for around 55,000 homes. Meridian Energy Australia has purchased 50% of this energy under a long term power purchase agreement to support the growth of its retail business Powershop, which is Australia’s greenest energy retailer. Additionally, Sydney Airports has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Origin Energy to receive up to 75% of its current electricity from the wind project which will be firmed by the retailer.

The project forms part of the Grassroots Renewable Energy Platform, an energy investment portfolio owned by CWP Renewables and Partners Group.
