Wind energy is playing a major part as Australia transitions towards a renewable energy future, and so far in 2018 has wind contributed approximately $2 billion in investment and created over 2,000 jobs.
Wind Farm Open Day is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with Australia’s clean energy future.
