Hauâuru mâ raki draft decision released

A draft resource consent for the Hauâ uru mâ raki wind farm has been received for the project which is located on the west coast of the North Island in the Waikato region.  The project is located approximately 4 kilometres south of Port Waikato and 10 kilometres north of the Raglan coast.

The Board of Inquiry, appointed by the Minister for the Environment, has given the draft decision which proposes to grant resource consents for 168 wind turbines and designation for the transmission lines.

Wind Farm Group has been involved in developing the project since early 2004.  The Hauâ uru mâ raki wind farm is a joint venture between Wind Farm Group and Contact Energy. 

Hauâ uru mâ raki would generate up to 504 megawatts of power from 168 turbines, which is enough renewable energy to power around 170,000 average homes.
