Rare geothermal plants are present at Mokai. A 110 megawatt power station is now operating at the Mokai Geothermal System as well as a 12 hectare geothermally heated glass house and a milk drying plant.
The Mokai field is classified as a Development Geothermal System by Waikato Regional Council.
There has been stock damage to springs and native plants. A 55 megawatt power station commenced operation in 2000, and a 40 megawatt power station was added in 2005, followed by a 16MW upgrade in 2007.
