Have you ever wanted to see a wind turbine up close?... How about having a yarn with a wind farmer?...
Well here's your chance: Yes 2 Renewables are pleased to announce a tour of the Waubra wind farm on Saturday, 11 July.
Wind energy has grown in leaps and bounds in Australia since the early 2000s. The clean energy source creates good manufacturing jobs in places such as Portland; provides drought-proof income for farming communities; and helps us tackle global warming by outcompeting polluting power sources such as coal.
Wind farmer Doug Hobson will kindly give Yes 2 Renewables supporters a tour of the wind turbines on his property. Those who attend will have an up-close look at wind turbines, and get a have a chance to hear from Doug about the benefits of wind energy.
Spaces are strictly limited to 30 people, so please make sure you RSVP as soon as possible.
(NOTE: There may be a minibus from a central location in Melbourne depending on demand. Please email Yes 2 Renewables coordinator Leigh Ewbank if you'd like to hitch a ride).
