Cows and Te Uku Wind Farm
Raglan, which was in our travels recently we stopped after an hour or so of driving to get out and stretch our legs. This farm along the main road into the town had some curious cows out the front near the fence. This one came up to us and had a good look at the car and what we were doing.
Behind the farm on the horizon in the distance was this wind farm in Te Uku. Consisting of 28 turbines it was built in March 2008 costing $200 million NZD and covering 200 hectares. It's owned by Meridian Energy and WEL Networks. It's controlled from our capital Wellington and was officially opened by the Prime Minister in 2011.
