Event description

Description

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.

BJCE Australia is excited to offer tours of the Gullen Range Wind and Solar Farm. The tours are a great opportunity for the public to see Australia’s first co-located wind and solar farm. Gullen Range Wind and Solar Farm is located near Crookwell, NSW and is also a part of the Renewable Energy Trail established by the South East Region of Renewable Energy Excellence (SERREE)


What to expect on the tour:

You will be met at the Crookwell Hotel Motel, from there our staff will take you on a tour of the wind and solar farm in a 24-seater bus. You will be able to see how our wind and solar farm works, learn about renewable energy and get up close to a wind turbine and a solar array.

The tour is two and a half hours long and includes complimentary light refreshments. Guests should arrive at the Crookwell Hotel Motel Bistro in Crookwell by 11:15am. The tour bus departs promptly at 11.30am and returns at 1.30pm. Guests are welcome to enjoy a complimentary coffee or tea before the tour. A light lunch is served when you return.
