Drumduff Wind Farm Open Day

Drumduff
    • Discover how the wind turbines at Drumduff transform wind into clean electricity to power our homes and businesses.

      Our family-oriented open day invites you to come and visit an operational wind farm, ask questions of our team and learn more about renewable energy through a range of interactive and fun activities.

      • Renewable energy science show
      • Chance to see inside a wind turbine
      • Interactive wind farm developer game
      • Team on hand to answer questions
      • Biking challenges
      • Face painting

      The open day is free to attend but we ask you to let us know your planned arrival time to control numbers through the day. As a guide, most people will spend 1 to 2 hours with us on the site.

      *** UPDATE: We’re delighted to announce that Alison Johnstone, Green MSP, Lothian has agreed to officially open the Wind Farm at 1.30pm. ***

      We also ask you to register your contact details (email address and phone number) to send you information about the event and in case there are any last minute changes.

      The event is mainly outdoors so please bring clothing suitable for the weather on the day such as sun hats, sun cream, waterproofs, suitable footwear, and something warm - it can get quite windy at a wind farm! You may also want to bring your camera and a pair of binoculars to see the tops of the turbines better.

      The open day is free to attend but we ask you to let us know your planned arrival time to control numbers through the day. Visit: www.thriverenewables.co.uk/openday
