Mahinerangi Wind Farm lies 7km north of Lake Mahinerangi, in the South Island of New Zealand.
- Maximum capacity
- 160 MW (proposed)
- 50km west of Dunedin, Otago
Resource Consents were granted in 2009 to allow for the construction of up to 100 wind turbines or 200MW of capacity, so there is significant opportunity to expand the development from the 12 turbine Stage 1 project, at some point. When complete, the wind farm will potentially have an average annual output over 600GWh, helping to meet New Zealand’s future energy needs.
