Landholders

Landholders play a critical role in the development of a wind farm.

The foundation of all Pacific Hydro’s activities is a strong working relationship with local landholders to secure suitable sites for development.

If you think your property is a suitable site for a wind farm, we would love to hear from you.

Please complete our Prospective Site Assessment Sheet with as much detail as possible and return it to our office by email or post to:

When a site has passed our comprehensive initial ‘checklist’, Pacific Hydro undertakes the additional steps to develop the project. Measuring the wind resource, grid connection, planning, flora and fauna studies, construction requirements and purchase agreements with an energy retailer are the main steps. We also consider any historical or cultural heritage issues, and any resulting tourism opportunities.

To help you fully understand the role a landholder plays in the development of a wind project, we have provided answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
