[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Resource consent applications for Meridian Energy’s wind farm proposal west of Wellington have been notified by the Wellington City and Greater Wellington Regional Councils and the company is now inviting supporters of wind power to show their support. Project West Wind is a proposal for a 210 MW wind farm on farmland west of Wellington on Quartz Hill and Terawhiti Station. It will produce up to 850 GWH of energy per year, more than enough electricity to power all the homes in Wellington city, Lower Hutt and Porirua. Meridian believes it will be the most productive wind farm in the world. Submissions on Project West Wind must be received by the Wellington City Council by 4 pm on Wednesday 10 August 2005. Meridian energy prepared a submission form (at the following link) to give supporters a chance to voice their views on the project.
