|Arnold Power Station|
|Nameplate capacity||3 MW (4,000 hp)|
The Arnold Power Station is a hydroelectric facility fed from Lake Brunner on the Arnold River in West Coast, New Zealand, owned and operated by TrustPower. The plant is rated at 3 megawatts (4,000 hp) and has an average annual output of 25 gigawatt-hours (90 TJ).
TrustPower has been planning a new hydroelectric power station at Arnold, with an output of 46 megawatts (62,000 hp) and average annual generation of 220 gigawatt-hours (790 TJ). Consents for this project were granted by the Grey District and West Coast Regional Councils in November 2008. Though the resource consents were upheld by the Environment Court in 2010, the project was put on hold indefinitely in 2012 due to changes in economic conditions.
