Albany Wind Farm, Albany
(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Experience the power of the wind at Albany Wind Farm, a wind power station featuring 18 turbines that produce over 80 percent of Albany’s electricity. The wind farm, with its long boardwalks along the rugged cliffs and panoramic views of the ocean, is a popular stop for travelers from around the world. The site’s turbines are the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, designed to withstand the strongest winds likely in the region, and incorporating special lightning protection. The farm is located at an elevated position, approximately 80 meters (262 ft) above the Southern Ocean, which allows the turbines to exploit the local wind conditions to the maximum. Plan your visit to Albany Wind Farm and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Albany trip itinerary maker.
