Mt Barker WA windfarm tour
Andrew from Skyfarms has been heavily involved in the development of the Mt Barker and Denmark wind farms and has a deep knowledge of all aspects of renewable energy, particularly around the challenges WA faces trying to meet the State government's new ambitious renewable energy targets. This is an opportunity to talk with him and tour one of the WA's pioneering renewable energy projects.
Interested members should register as numbers will be limited to the first ten vehicles. This limit has been requested as the wind farm is on private farm land. Please register by Friday November 10 as after that date the event will be opened to the wider EV community in WA.
Members should make their own way to Mt Barker, if possible on Friday 24th for an informal catch up and meal at the Plantagenet hotel/bistro around 6-630pm. There are a number of accomodation options in the town including the pub.
We will meet at 10am on Sat November 25 in the Centenary Park car park on the south side of Memorial Rd in town, opposite the Plantagenet District Hall and will travel in convoy to the wind farm, about 4 km north on Albany highway.
We should also have the opportunity to plug a couple of cars in to directly charge from a wind turbine.
Following the tour, individuals can lunch, tour or return home.
Mt Barker only has a single 15A charger so charging at Williams is a good option. Kojonup only has a single CCS2 50kW charger which has been prone to malfunction, but the Albany 150kW Kempower units are wonderful.
New and existing members are invited to coffee at the ACT TOCA Coffee Club monthly catch-up at Cafe Stepping Stone Dickson ...
