Hapu determined to stick out wind farm fight  

Ngati Kahungunu isn’t letting up on its resistance to a Hawkes Bay windfarm despite its foe just getting a lot bigger.

Genesis Energy has joined Unison & Roaring 40s’ in a venture to build a 34-turbine windfarm on the Te Waka Range beside the Napier Taupo Road.

The Environment Court has already knocked back a 37-turbine farm for the site, because of its impact on the environment … and on Maori spiritual values.

Bevan Taylor from the Mangahaururu Tangitu Society says the involvement of the State Owned Enterprise will make the fight tougher.

“You’ve got two powerful groups forming together an alliance and it just makes it, if we’re looking at resources, tough for our hapu eh,” he says.

Mr Taylor says the hapu will repeat its objections to the resource consent hearing next month.
