Wild Horse Wind Farm

Last April Bryan and I took a day trip to Wild Horse Wind Farm near Ellensburg. The Wind Farm has a visitor’s center called the Renewable Energy Center.

The visitor’s center is a beautiful building with great views of the wind turbines and surrounding land. It is open April to November, weather-permitting.

We took a guided tour of the facility and were able to go inside the base of an operating wind turbine (pictured below).

The tour is free and it was interesting to learn about wind and solar technology. It was very windy by the visitor’s center and while on the tour, so I would recommend bringing a warm jacket. It was definitely worth the drive to see.
