Turbines in city  

Riverdale could soon have its own wind farm.
Wind turbines are planned for the Awapuni Sustainable Development Centre, the old landfill site.

Palmerston North City Council waste and water services manager Chris Pepper said the turbines are expected to generate about 500kW of power, which the council will use in its bid to become self-sufficient.

The wind farm is still in the planning stage, but two wind masts have been put up behind the recycling centre to monitor the wind.

Testing will go on for another six months. Mr Pepper said decisions on how many turbines, or what size they would be, have not been made.

He said the council will probably apply for resource consent for the turbines next year.
