Wind Energy for Your Place

If you are interested in wind energy for your region, community, farm or business the NZ Wind Energy Association can provide more details.

In choosing a suitable site for the potential development of a wind farm or wind turbine, five key variables need to be assessed at an early stage:

1.  Proximity to a distribution line of appropriate voltage and capacity

2.  Ease of establishing suitable road access to the site

3.  Suitability of the site for building a wind farm

4.  Absence of significant resource consent issues

5.  Annual mean wind speed
