Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Jeremy Takao flipped the big­gest switch of his life last week.

The 8-year-old from Rus­sell School helped Prime Min­is­ter John Key switch on the tur­bines at the Mere­dian En­ergy’s Mill Creek wind farm in Ohariu Val­ley on Wed­nes­day.

Jeremy got the op­por­tu­nity through Merid­ian’s spon­sor­ship of Kid­sCan and was cho­sen by school prin­ci­pal Sose An­nan­dale.

Mill Creek is the 10th wind farm Merid­ian has de­vel­oped or pur­chased.

By Au­gust, 26 tur­bines are ex­pected to be op­er­at­ing.
