Wind turbines at Mercury's Kaiwaikawe Wind Farm


We're working hard to get the Kaiwaikawe Wind Farm ready for an investment decision and then construction. We are seeking expressions of interest to join a Community Consultative Group that will be an on-going point of contact for local residents, and will facilitate information flow between Mercury and the community. We are committed to an open engagement process to ensure community issues are addressed: to listen to you and to be available to discuss your questions and concerns. Please email us at to express your interest in joining the Group. We’ll be in touch to confirm the establishment of the group closer to the time of the project construction (not known at this time).
