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 [email protected] 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.
