Wind Generation

The nature of the New Zealand power system (small and islanded) means there are technical requirements for wind generation that can be more onerous than those found in other countries.

A wind generation investigation project was undertaken to look at the technical requirements.

Wind Generation Investment

Parties considering wind generation investment in New Zealand (whether likely to be grid connected or not) should contact Transpower as soon as possible to discuss connection and/or asset owner obligations.

The nature of the New Zealand power system (small and islanded) means there are technical requirements for wind generation that can be more onerous than those found in the larger interconnected grids of other countries.

Transpower is keen to help interested parties by providing as much information as possible on these issues. We will treat all inquiries and discussions about future connection as confidential.

To begin discussions with Transpower contact:
