10 Cool Things About Wind Energy
Global Wind Day
15 June 2015
MERIDIAN ENERGY LIMITED
Climate change is happening. Wind energy is part of
the solution.
15 June 2015 * 10 Cool Things About Wind Energy
It’s a cleaner, more sustainable alternative to generation from fossil fuels.
MERIDIAN ENERGY LIMITED
Unlike many countries in the world, in New Zealand
wind energy isn’t subsidised.
15 June 2015 * 10 Cool Things About Wind Energy
It doesn’t need to be, as we’re blessed with the Roaring 40s (strong westerly winds in the southern
hemisphere) and have world-class expertise in building economic wind farms.
MERIDIAN ENERGY LIMITED
Wind energy contributes to electricity generation,
directly and indirectly, when national demand is at its
peak.
15 June 2015 * 10 Cool Things About Wind Energy
It’s likely that a wind farm somewhere in New Zealand is generating in every peak period.
If not, water stored in the country’s hydro lakes, while the wind is blowing,
can be used to fuel generation at peak times.
MERIDIAN ENERGY LIMITED
In New Zealand, wind energy is about three times
cheaper than solar energy.
15 June 2015 * 10 Cool Things About Wind Energy
Every country’s different, and the cost of technology is forever changing.
Solar definitely has its place for homes and businesses looking to be more sustainable.
MERIDIAN ENERGY LIMITED
Wellington is one of the windiest cities in the world,
some might argue the windiest.
15 June 2015 * 10 Cool Things About Wind Energy
The region is home to two of Meridian’s wind farms, which generate enough electricity
to power all the homes of Wellington City and half of Lower Hutt.
