New Zealand has 17 wind farms either operating or under construction. These wind farms currently have a combined installed capacity of 622 megawatts. They supply about 4% of New Zealand’s annual electricity generation, which is about the same amount of electricity as 180,000 New Zealand homes use in a year. Developers are exploring sites throughout New Zealand for new wind farms.
