In November 2009, Trustpower was granted resource consent for the Mahinerangi Wind Farm which lies 7km north of Lake Mahinerangi, in the South Island of New Zealand and is 50km west of Dunedin, Otago. Stage one was commissioned in 2011 where twelve turbines were installed providing a capacity of 36MW. In August 2021, Mercury NZ Ltd acquired the whole project, along with phase 2 development rights and consents. When phase two is complete, the total wind farm capacity will be around 172 MW.
