Event description
Discover community energy in action! Our guides tell the history of our site and how the turbines/solar panels create clean green energy.

About this event

Join our friendly, knowledgeable guides for an ON-SITE TOUR of our wind farm and solar park on the Oxfordshire / Wiltshire border

Take your place to learn about how the Westmill Wind Farm & Solar Park became one of the largest community-owned solar farms in the world!

Discover how our turbines work, learn about renewable energy, hear the history of the site and find out about the installation and energy generation of the five turbines and over twenty thousand solar panels.

This event takes place on-site at Westmill. But if you find it difficult to join us in person, why not take a virtual tour instead? Visit our website to find out more.

** NB: Please note that this event is weather-dependent and may be rescheduled, postponed or cancelled if thunderstorms or gale-force winds are forecast, or occur during a tour. If rain is forecast, tours will go ahead. **
