Wind Energy Projects in New Zealand

NZ Wind Energy Association maintains a register of all wind farms that are operating or under constuction.

New Zealand has 19 wind farms either operating or under construction. These wind farms currently have a combined installed capacity of 623 megawatts. They supply about 5% of New Zealand’s annual electricity generation, which is about the same amount of electricity as 180,000 kiwi homes use in a year.

There is currently 2,500 MW of wind generation consented in New Zealand and developers are exploring sites throughout New Zealand for new wind farms.
