Rototuna Wind Farm is a proposed wind farm in the Rototuna Forest in Northland, New Zealand. The concept is being developed by Meridian Energy, and has the potential to produce up to 500 MW.[1]

The wind resource for this project has been monitored since 2006. Feasibility studies also include radar mapping of the flight paths of birds migrating through the area.[1] A study commissioned by EECA assessed this wind resource at 200-300 MW.[2]
