The nature of the New Zealand power system (small and islanded) means there are technical requirements for new generation that can be more onerous than those found in other countries.

 

New Generation Investment

Parties considering wind generation investment in New Zealand (whether likely to be grid connected or not) should contact Transpower as soon as possible to discuss connection and/or asset owner obligations.

The nature of the New Zealand power system (small and islanded) means there are technical requirements for generation that can be more onerous than those found in the larger interconnected grids of other countries.
