On Sunday 21 October, nine wind farms around Australia will be throwing open their gates to the public for a range of fun and informative open day events. Wind energy is playing a major part as Australia transitions towards a renewable energy future, and so far in 2018 has wind contributed approximately $2 billion in investment and created over 2,000 jobs.
Wind Farm Open Day is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with Australia’s clean energy future.
Wind farms will be opening their gates in NSW, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.
