Refining NZ

Marsden Point refinery is exploring the viability of a 26 MW solar farm to be potentially developed adjacent to the refinery to supply it with renewable electricity. The 31 hectare solar farm – New Zealand’s largest – would be situated on land belonging to the Company and is estimated to cost around $36-$39 million. Early work shows that the solar farm would reduce the cost of the refinery’s electricity consumption and have a positive impact on shareholder value. It is also a further step by the company in the transition towards a lower carbon future. Current share price: $2.10, 12 month target price: $2.38, Gross Dividend: 4.96%, PE Ratio: 22.18.
