More wind

Last year, Meridian Energy's proposed Mill Creek wind farm was granted resource consent by the Environment Court. Meridian has just confirmed that they will be beginning construction by August, with the project scheduled for completion in 2014.

It's a small wind farm - only 60MW - but every bit helps. And as long as we keep pushing new investment into wind and geothermal, we have a good chance of making that 90% renewables target by 2030.
