German renewables developer Enertrag AG announced on Friday that it has signed a corporate power purchase agreement (PPA) tied to its 36-MW wind farm project in Poland.
The off-taker is Orange Polska SA (WSE:OPL), the Polish subsidiary of French telecommunications company Orange SA (EPA:ORA), which sought to procure green energy to power its infrastructure and meet sustainability targets, Enertrag said.

The wind project in question was not named in Enertrag’s press release. The German firm said it developed it, and would use ten Vestas V126 turbines with a capacity of 3.6 MW each to assemble the wind farm.
The turbines are due to be commissioned by 2024. Once in operation, the wind farm will be capable of generating 125 GWh annually, which would be enough to meet around 20% of Orange Polska’s electricity needs.
At present, Enertrag is in the process of constructing and commissioning 186 MW of wind power capacity across the Dargikowo and Karlino projects in Poland, the German developer added.
As for Orange Polska, the telecom has pledged to cut its direct and indirect CO2 emissions by 65% by 2025, compared to the base year 2015. The company set the target to reach net climate neutrality by 2040 at the latest, according to Friday’s press release.
