Te Apiti, New Zealand Wind Farm Abstract The Te Apiti Wind Farm, located in New Zealand, is a group of wind turbines owned and operated by Meridian Energy. It is located north of the Manawatu Gorge in the North Island of New Zealand. The wind turbine is used to produce electric power (electricity) to the New Zealand national grid. The wind farm consists of 55 turbines, each capable of generating 1.65 mega watts (MW) of energy, which can produce enough power for approximately 45,000 homes.
