Q: Story of the week

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

The Wind Turbine is positioned in one of the more stunning viewing locations in Wellington. That’s hardly surprising given the need to site this Meridian Energy power generator in an exposed wind position with an unobstructed aspect to the prevailing winds.

The turbine is a short distance from Highbury and the Zealandia - The Karori Sanctuary Experience along a walking track which winds its way eventually to Red Rocks on Wellington’s south coast. But if you’re less aerobically inclined, just take a car from Wellington’s CBD to Brooklyn and turn right.

The Wind Turbine was installed on the top of a Brooklyn hill in March 1993 as part of a research project into wind power. It is often visible from many parts of Wellington and stands as an elegant reminder that wind power is both environmentally friendly and can add an unobtrusive feature to our hill-top landscapes.

    Very Nice! This photo reminds me of a lot of mine. I have a lot of Indiana Wind Turbines SunSet photos.
