Open House Tours of the ACUA Wind Farm!
September 1, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) offers free summer Open House Tours of the wind farm at its Wastewater Treatment Facility on Monday and Friday at 12 noon in July and August.
No reservations are required, but visitors should plan to arrive by 12 noon.
We welcome all, but this tour may be more appropriate for kids age 8 and up.
The wind farm is the first commercial development of its kind in the state, as well as the first coastal and urban wind farm in the nation.
Between ACUA’s wind and solar projects on site, a significant amount of completely renewable energy is produced each day. The tour offers visitors a chance to get a close up view of the wind turbines, each measuring more than 380 feet from the ground to the blade’s tip, to see 500 kilowatts worth of solar arrays, and learn how these renewable energy projects help the ACUA’s wastewater treatment process.
The tour will last about one hour.
The facility is located at 1801 Absecon Blvd. in Atlantic City.
