How to Register Your Interest

Energy3 Limited is interested in developing Distributed Wind Farms in partnership with landowners.

Distributed Wind Farms are characterised by being relatively small (0.5-5MW) and connected into the local lines distribution network (as opposed to Transpower)

Typically, we will:

  • Identify an area with good quality wind resources, close to existing local electricity lines with good access
  • Approach the landowner to investigate whether they are interested in a small scale wind farm development
  • Sign a letter of intent which gives Energy3 the exclusive right to undertake further development work on the property for a 3 year period while protecting the landowners interests

Energy3 makes provision in its arrangements with landowners to involve them in the development if they wish as an equity owner alongside Energy3.

Energy3 offers an initial free evaluation of the suitability of potential sites for wind farm development.

If you have a site which you believe is suitable for Distributed Wind Farm Development, or you would like to develop your own Distributed Wind farm, the please contact:
