Our Blueskin Turbine
For regular updates on this project please see our latest news (in the right hand column of this page) or go directly to the Blueskin Energy Limited website.
We have a vision of Blueskin communities being self sufficient in energy. Building a community wind turbine is just the first step. A crazy idea first put forward in a community visioning exercise in 2006, the Blueskin wind idea has grown legs.
We have done wind monitoring since 2011 submitted a Resource Consent application in 2015, and we're hoping to complete the consenting process in 2017.
Imagine New Zealand's first community wind turbine up and running as a social business, providing social, environmental and financial benefit to the Blueskin community.
Blueskin residents have always been creative and audacious. We are now very close to pushing the 'Go' button...
