Woolworths Group has made its first renewable power purchase agreement (PPA) with a new-build wind farm in New South Wales, Australia, to inject 195,000 Megawatt hours of green electricity into the state’s energy grid annually. 

From January 2022, the PPA will cover around 30 per cent of Woolworths Group’s NSW energy needs with the electricity required to power 108 supermarkets, avoiding almost 158,000 tonnes of carbon emissions each year. This is the equivalent to the yearly energy needs of 34,000 homes and adds to the group’s existing network of rooftop solar panels at around 140 locations nationally. 

Woolworths has partnered with CWP Renewables on a 10-year agreement to purchase power generated by the new Bango wind farm outside Yass, supporting regional investment and jobs.

Woolworths Group Director of Format, Rob McCartney said: “We know the steps we take to become a more sustainable business today will help create a better tomorrow for generations to come. Going beyond net carbon neutral, we’ve committed to take more carbon out of the atmosphere than we produce by 2050 and our first renewable power purchase is a key milestone in that pursuit."
