Our group wants to purchase 110 GWh worth of energy from new large scale renewable energy facilities. This amount of renewable energy will save up to 138,600 tonnes of CO2 each year, which is the equivalent of planting more than 160,000 new trees and is enough energy to power 28,475 Melbourne households.
Through a group tender process open from Wednesday 20 April to Monday 20 June through Procurement Australia, we sought proposals from the market to deliver renewable energy at an attractive price for a 10 year term, and to demonstrate a range of community and economic benefits.
This tender submission period has now closed. We will be reviewing the tender submissions and expect to announce the successful tenderer later in 2016.
