NSW Renewable Energy Day 2012
14 November 2012
Infigen Energy is hosting an open day at its Woodlawn wind farm on 21 November 2012 to celebrate the first Renewable Energy Day in New South Wales and Canberra region.
The initiative was launched to showcase the benefits, opportunities and challenges presented by the growth of the renewable energy industry by Regional Development and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.
“We have activities planned for kids to learn about energy and how wind turbines work, as well as the opportunity to view the inside of a wind turbine tower,” said Dave Brockwell, site manager at Woodlawn wind farm.
“On a more serious note, this is an open invitation to those who are curious about how wind farms operate. Everyone has an opportunity to stand close to an operating wind turbine and ask questions of technicians who work in close proximity to the turbines every day,” he said.
Employees from Infigen’s operations, development and construction teams will be the wind farm tour guides on the day. They will explain how the wind farm is managed, about the composition of turbines and how wind energy is turned into electricity.
There are still places left on the complimentary buses departing Bungendore, Goulburn and Tarago.
Individuals wishing to join the tour must register beforehand here or call 02 8031 9900. Registrations close on 20 November 2012.
Woodlawn wind farm forms a part of the Capital Renewable Energy Precinct.
