Wild Horse Wind & Solar Facility Tour
Triple XXX Rootbeer, 98 NE Gilman Blvd, Issaquah
Saturday, October 15th, 9:00 am
Join us Saturday, October 15th at 8:30 am at Triple XXX Rootbeer parking lot for the start of the Wild Horse Wind and Solar Facility tour. We will leave at 9:00 am sharp and plan on a lunch stop in Ellensburg and stop at the Petrified Forest and the Wild Horse sculptures at Vantage.
The Wild Horse facility tour is scheduled for 2:00pm and a presentation at 3:00. Join us for a 60 minute walking tour that explores the solar array, wind turbine blade, turbine generator and gearbox, and lets you look inside the base of an active wind turbine!
Closed-toed shoes are REQUIRED.
The tour covers a 1/2 mile on gravel trails. Tour participants with mobility issues can arrange vehicle access to the base of the turbine.
Dress for the weather. Wind speeds average 17 mph and it is typically cooler on the ridge.
All participants must sign a liability form. Minors must have the liability form signed by a parent or guardian to participate in the tour.
We hope you can make it on this truly unique event!
