The SE chapter of the Colorado Renewable Energy Society has arranged a tour of the 294 megawatt NEXTera Energy wind farm in eastern El Paso County. The tour is limited to the first 40 people who register, with priority for SECRES members, so act now! A suggested donation of $10 would be appreciated. Contact Jacquie Ostrom at 719 238-1993 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Once our carpool arrives at the wind farm, NEXTera will give us a talk as a group, then we’ll get into smaller groups to go into the base of a wind turbine where a technical engineer will give us a tour.
For more information on the NEXTera wind farm, see this fact sheet.
What role can renewable energy play in our future? What are the water implications of future energy systems? What are the energy requirements for water systems? Jordan Macknick from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will answer these and other questions during his presentation on the Energy/Water Nexus.
Jordan Macknick is a member of NREL’s Energy Forecasting and Modeling Group in Golden, Colorado. Jordan has a master’s degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. His research includes the study of how energy, water and land use are interrelated.
This event is sponsored by the SE chapter of the Colorado Renewable Energy Society (SECRES). It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
