Renewable energy developer and operator CWP Renewables is calling on local community groups and charities to apply for sponsorship in a special Christmas $30,000 round of support.

CWP Renewables Head of Development Ed Mounsey said with the challenges and impacts of COVID-19 in recent times, there was a desire to ensure local community groups had additional support.

"If we can make it a little easier for the community organisations that do such a great job of providing support for those in need at Christmas, we'd like to hear from you," he said.

"Whilst we offer community sponsorships all year around in the areas in which our projects are located, we wanted to provide additional support during the Christmas period.

"We want to spread the Christmas cheer across all the regions we have a presence in.

"For Bango Wind Farm which is under construction, applications will be considered from organisations which operate or service the Yass Valley Council and Hilltops Council areas."

CWP Renewables has a 4 GW portfolio of renewable energy projects in operation, construction and development across NSW and provides community sponsorship for a range of key areas.

This is in addition to community benefit or enhancement funds which are set up to provide annual funding for community initiatives for the life of the project.

Christmas sponsorship requests are welcome by Friday, November 12 in all local government areas of CWP Renewables projects.

A total sponsorship pool of $30,000 will be shared across the regions in support of Christmas initiatives.

Applications can be submitted on the CWP Renewables website at
