The Northern Advocate, a New Zealand regional paper reports the retiring of Roger de Bray, the CEO of Top Energy Ltd. He leaves a legacy behind him that is truly remarkable in the geothermal energy sector.

The article reports that his “legacy is the Ngawha geothermal power station, now supplying 70 per cent of the electricity consumed in the Far North and with the potential to eventually meet all the district’s needs plus some extra power generated for sale to the national grid.

Mr de Bray’s 18 years of effort for Top Energy were hailed at the official opening on Saturday of the $78million power station expansion project, the most significant commercial development in the region since major pine plantations were established more than 20 years ago.” More details about the Ngawha geothermal power plant can be found on the website of Top Energy here.
