Mill Creek wind farm is located northwest of Wellington near Ohariu Valley.
The 26 turbines generate up to 59.8 megawatts of electricity, producing enough electricity each year for about 30,000 average New Zealand homes.
The Mill Creek wind farm is located on privately-owned farms in Ohariu Valley. The landowners chose wind farming because it will preserve the environment, lifestyle and rural character of the areas better than other development options such as a major housing subdivision or forestry. They selected Meridian to develop and operate the wind farm because of our experience with developing wind energy in New Zealand.
Mill Creek is largely hidden from Wellington’s urban area, but visible from high points in the city’s green belt.
