Wind energy is playing a major part as Australia transitions towards a renewable energy future, and so far in 2018 has wind contributed approximately $7.6 billion in investment and almost 4000 direct jobs.

Wind Farm Open Day offered a great opportunity to get up close and personal with Australia’s clean energy future.

Wind farms opened their gates in NSW, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.
