Mainpower is proposing a small regional windfarm at Mt Cass in North Canterbury. It's currently in the preliminary stages, and they're unsure yet whether they will be going for 15 or 25 MW (it depends, among oher things, on turbine prices and whether they can expand on to a neighbouring property). But either way it will be a nice addition to their portfolio, and a good example of the way regional windfarms can be used to take some strain of the national grid.
Hot Topic, who will be able to see it from his veranda, isn't sure yet about how he feels. Personally I think turbines spinning lazily in the sun in the background are quite pretty - but some people's milage obviously varies.
