Energise Otaki received an award for the Project Category of the inaugural WWF (NZ) Conservation Innovation Awards in late 2014. We are very grateful for this recognition of the Energise Otaki vision and will be using the funding made available for a range of exciting projects in 2015.
The Otaki Energy Co-operative Ltd trading as Coastal Energy has been established in 2014 as a mechanism to achieve direct investment in renewable energy production projects in Otaki and its surrounds. Several projects have been completed, among others an installation at Te Kura-ā-Iwi O Whakatupuranga Rua Mano in Tasman Road.
Stage 1 of the Otaki College solar energy system has been installed. The 10.4 KW system is the first part of a planned 20KW system currently planned for the College. When completed it will be the second largest school solar energy system in New Zealand.
Energise Otaki has just been awarded project category of the inaugural World Wildlife Fund (NZ) 2014 Conservation Innovation Awards.
