Join Alki Tours on Wild Horse Wind Farm, Wineries And Road House Grill
September 6, 2017
$99 per person
You've seen them up on the hills, spinning their blades from the famous wind we have here, but have you ever been up close and personal with one of those gigantic wind turbines? Each turbine stands 351 feet tall and weighs 223 tons (FYI: an elephant weights about 8 tons, so that's approximately 28 elephants heavy!) This fun trip packs an educational punch. It's amazing what these windmills can do, but even more amazing how small you feel standing next to one. The wind farm was built by Puget Sound Energy in 2006 and has since expanded to a total of 149 turbines on 10,000 acres of land. Those turbines produce enough energy to power 80,000 homes! A guide will take us through the facility complete with displays and videos explaining how energy is produced from wind and sun. After, we'll go inside a tower and see how it all works. The views are amazing. The day includes transportation, tour, lunch at the Road House Grill and wine tasting.
