The Clean Energy Finance Corporation:
The Clean Energy Finance Corporation will invest a further $80 million in renewable energy in regional New South Wales, bringing to $350 million the amount of finance the CEFC has committed to the State’s renewable energy sector in just four months.
The latest CEFC commitment will help accelerate the development and delivery of the $236 million 113 MW Bodangora wind farm, near Wellington in the state’s central west. It is the CEFC’s second major investment in wind generation in regional NSW in the past year, following its recent commitment of $120 million to the $588 million Sapphire Wind Farm near Glen Innes.
In February, the CEFC committed a further $150 million to accelerate the construction of three large-scale solar farms in NSW, to be built in Dubbo, Parkes and Griffith. The solar projects have a combined value of $230 million.
“With these projects we are seeing regional New South Wales capitalising on its natural strengths in renewable energy, contributing to a substantial increase in the state’s clean energy capacity,” CEFC Wind sector lead Andrew Gardner said.
