Can wind farms make you smile? Come and visit one to find out – 15 June 2012

7 June 2012

This year Infigen Energy is celebrating Global Wind Day by hosting an open day at the Capital Renewable Energy Precinct. The open day will consist of tours to the Woodlawn Wind Farm and a renewable energy information forum in the Bungendore School of Arts.

Infigen’s Operations Control Centre operators, wind farm developers and construction project managers will be your wind farm tour guides. They will candidly explain how the wind farm is managed, about the composition of turbines and how wind power is turned into electricity.

“This is a great opportunity to see and hear the wind turbines operating up close. We have had hundreds of registrations from different age groups, ranging from a young school age to senior citizens, who all want to visit the wind farm,” says Rene Kuypers, manager of the Capital Renewable Energy Precinct.

Individuals wishing to join the tour must register beforehand here or call 02 8031 9900.

The information forum in Bungendore will cover questions about wind and solar energy, Infigen’s Capital and Woodlawn wind farms and proposed solar projects.

The forum is open to all visitors between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.
