Triodos Renewables wind farm open day pulls in the crowds

Triodos Renewables wind farm open day pulls in the crowds

The sun was shining and the wind aptly blowing strong on Saturday 6 June at Triodos Renewables’ second open day at Avonmouth wind farm. Aimed at families from Bristol and beyond, it was a chance for visitors to learn more about the wind turbines at the site.

More than 400 visitors attended the open day, which had a range of educational and exciting activities including face painting, paper wind turbine building and wind turbine crazy golf. The award winning GENeco bio-bus was also on hand to give visitors the low-down on how it works, The Explorer Dome hosted a renewable energy focused show specially created for the open day and the The Landmark Practice provided information about the many environmental advantages the Triodos Renewables site brings to the area. Email renewables@triodos.co.uk for information on future wind farm visit.
