Northpower isn't getting involved in cryptocurrency or the NFT space, but we do have an awesome opportunity to turn Northland into the country's first Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) in a project being led by Transpower.
A Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) is an environmentally-friendly way of connecting new renewable electricity generation and major electricity users to the electricity network and can quickly increase renewable energy supply and its use.
There is around 11GW of wind and solar generation that investors may consider building in the next 30 years. Around 5GW of this generation is in regions where currently, high connection costs or the first mover disadvantage could inhibit investment. REZs could enable access to this generation.
In Northland, based on current connection enquiries there is potentially up to 2GW of new renewable generation that could be built – enough renewable electricity to power up to 375,000 households. However, current infrastructure wouldn’t allow that new electricity to be carried to where it is needed.Learn more
