Solar Farms / Edgecumbe



The Bay of Plenty’s Edgecumbe is home to our second utility-scale solar farm, Rangitaiki. Constructed in 2023/2024 the solar farm began generating in early 2024.

Our Rangitaiki site was scouted and subsequently chosen as a priority location because of its high sunshine hours, reliable transmission interconnection and proximity to local industrial loads.

The solar farm’s agrivoltaic design allows machinery to operate and livestock to graze around the solar arrays, meaning agriculture can continue alongside power generation.

The Edgecumbe farm has a capacity of 32 MW and will generate enough electricity to power 7,500 Kiwi homes each year.
