A consortium of large energy users led by Telstra has announced it had entered into long-term power purchase agreements covering the 226MW first stage of the Murra Warra Wind Farm near Horsham in western Victoria, Australia.

Murra Warra Wind Farm is owned by RES and Macquarie Capital. Under the agreements the consortium members, ANZ, Coca-Cola Amatil, Telstra and the University of Melbourne, secured long-term supply and price security. In return, Murra Warra Wind Farm secured contracting certainty over output from the first stage of the project and can commence construction. Construction of the first stage of the project will begin in 2018 and it is expected to be fully operational by mid-2019.
