More steps to go through for windfarm: Meridian  

Meridian Energy says there are still more steps to go through before the wind farm near Wellington that’s been given Environment Court approval goes ahead.

The Court has approved 66 of the 70 turbines that Meridian Energy had planned at Makara.

Meridian says the windfarm would produce enough energy to supply most of the Wellington region.

Its Chief Executive, Keith Turner, says he’s pleased with the decision.

But he says a commercial analysis still has to be completed, tenders obtained for construction, and the company needs to confirm it has the money for the project, before it will definitely go ahead.

Mr Turner says there’s also the possibility of an appeal against the decision.
