Alinta Energy is calling for expressions of interest for renewable projects larger than 50MW in the NEM.

The company, which already has around 3000MW of owned and contracted capacity in its generation portfolio already, is looking for opportunities where an offtake partner is required or where equity opportunities exist.

Energy CEO Jeff Dimery said with the company recently welcoming its one millionth customer, it is eager to secure additional generation to help on its desire to provide more affordable energy to its fast-growing customer base.

“We’re taking on around 2000 customers a day at the moment and we’re working to deliver 1000MW of owned and contracted renewable generation by 2020,” Mr Dimery said.

“We welcome any contact from renewable energy developers who are prepared to work with us to deliver more affordable energy to our customers.

“As a retailer that is determined to drive down the cost of energy for our customers and is looking to challenge our larger competitors, I can assure those with suitable projects that you will find a partner that is ready, willing and able in Alinta Energy.”

The EOI period ends August 3.
