Project Scope

The CEFC provided $37.5 million in senior debt finance for the construction and operation of the Taralga Wind Farm, 45km north of Goulburn, New South Wales.

During construction, the project helped contribute to Australian manufacturing capability and scale in the renewable energy supply chain scale, using Australian- manufactured wind towers from BlueScope Steel in Portland, Victoria.

The 51 turbines will generate up to a total capacity of 107MW of renewable energy for the life of the project and supply energy equivalent to the needs of approximately 38,000 houses, and abating CO2 -e emissions of approximately 240,000 tonnes each year.
