You may notice that Wellington's wind turbine is in sight of the Parliament buildings. A, not so subtle, point being made to government about the potential for complaints about ruining the skyline!
Wellington, while windy, is not the best place to have a wind turbine as the wind is too variable. Palmerston North has the best spots.
An interesting anecdote about wind generation in NZ, when the first turbines were being ordered, the suppliers thought that the NZ engineers had got the decimal point in the wrong place as the usable wind was about 10 times as much as usual elsewhere in the world! (So they supplied turbines way under spec'd and they broke very quickly.)
(As for coffee - enjoy Wellington. Christchurch is not nearly as good for getting a nice flat white.)
