Pacific hydro is a great believer in the power of renewables
Global renewable energy owner, operator and developer, Pacific Hydro, had a big idea: to harness the wind to power cities for the future. But that takes big thinking – and some serious commitment from supporters like NAB.
As one of Australia’s original pioneers and leading renewable energy companies, Pacific Hydro is better placed than many to realise its vision.
Already, the Melbourne-based company has made a name for itself by bringing Australia its first large-scale project-financed wind farm. Since then, it has become the first renewable energy company to generate power for the country’s first multi-sector power purchase agreement (PPA), which facilitated the construction of the 80MW Crowlands Wind Farm in Victoria.
And the company’s big idea isn’t confined to Australia. Pacific Hydro continues to extend its reach in South America where it has established wind farms in Brazil and Chile, in addition to a number of hydro plants.
