Our Projects / Waiotahe

Waiotahe

Located in the sunny Bay of Plenty, Waiotahe is home to our third and largest utility-scale solar farm. With construction already underway, the farm will be generating in late 2024.

The breathtaking site borders the Waiotahe River in the Ōpōtiki District, and will generate enough power for more than 9,500 Kiwi homes each year.

With an agri-voltaic design, Waiotahe will maximise the production of electricity while maintaining productive farming activity.
