Visit to West Mill Wind Farms

On Sunday we had an excellent talk from Ron Colyer, also a section member, about the work of the West Mill Wind/Solar Farm near Swindon. The presentation was very interesting and we learnt about the technical and economic aspects of wind and solar power. The West Mill Wind farm is a community owned project with many local shareholders. Those attending the talk collected £75 for the WeSET charity that is working to educate people on sustainable energy. West Mill wind farms also supports WeSET directly.

On a beautiful day we then rode the short distance to see the wind farm in action, the video will show you what you missed! Many thanks to Ron and to Dave and Rosemary for organising the event.
