ABOUT

Sidrap Wind Farm is located in South Sulawesi and consists of 30 wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 75 MW. This project produces 253,000 MWh of renewable energy per year to the South Sulawesi national grid—that’s enough to power over 70,000 local homes. The Sidrap Wind Farm reduces Indonesia’s dependence on fossil fuels for power generation, providing clean electricity to a nation in need of power.
