Blueskin Energy Limited

Blueskin Energy Limited (BEL) is a social enterprise established by the Blueskin Resilient Communities Trust (BRCT) to develop and own New Zealand’s first community led wind development.

We are working through the appeal process to allow development of the Blueskin Wind Farm.

We propose to construct and operate a wind farm at Blueskin Bay, to the north of Dunedin, Otago. The proposal is for a positive impact small-scale energy development comprising three (3) turbines (800kW to 900kW) located within the development envelope of 24ha. The maximum height envelope proposed is 90 metres to blade tip.

We would like to thank everybody who made a submission on our resource consent application. As a social enterprise we value the democratic process and all input has been appreciated. Your submissions made sure that all concerns were heard and were able to be addressed.

The resource consent decision was delivered on the 12th of July. The appeal was lodged on the 2nd of August. We are very pleased that the Comissioner accepted all our expert reports. We now look forward to working with opponents in mediation to discuss points of dispute and look at where we agree.
