From a renewable electricity perspective, New Zealand’s wind resource is globally admired and has proved to be cost-effective.

Wind power contributes 5 per cent of New Zealand’s energy portfolio — enough to power 3000 homes a year.

The Global Wind Energy Council says New Zealand’s wind resource is “spectacular” and one of the best in the world.

Turbines installed in the Manawatu area in 2007 recently achieved the record for producing the most electricity by any wind turbine in the world, testimony to New Zealand’s excellent wind regime.
