Why we need your help

WeSET provides tours/activities for visitors to educate people of
all ages about sustainable energy production, especially from five
the turbines and solar park on site. The site is open with no
shelter; tours are delivered during warmer, dryer periods. To
enable year-round tours/activities we will install facilities including
an
? all-weather, insulated yurt (Mongolian style); for
approximately 70 visitors; full-height lockable doors,
windows; simple kitchen facilities; with mains water.
? composting lavatory block for disabled/other users.
? exhibitions on sustainable energy production, how
individuals/organisations can reduce their carbon footprint,
etc.
? sheltered bike park.
? disabled, coach and other parking.

WeSET is currently limited to warmer months to provide tours/activities for visitors to educate people of all ages about sustainable energy production, especially from the five turbines and solar park on site. The site is open with no shelter so to enable year-round tours/activities we are raising funds to install facilities including -

· All-weather, insulated yurt (Mongolian style) for approximately 70 visitors; full-height lockable doors, windows; simple kitchen facilities; with mains water

· Composting lavatory block for disabled/other users

· Exhibitions on sustainable energy production, how individuals/organisations can reduce their carbon footprint,etc

· Sheltered bike park

· Disabled, coach and other parking.

It will be a great resource for visitors to Westmill Wind and Solar Farms who currently have to brave the elements to fully enjoy the site, seeing learning about sustainable energy.

Great project. I often bring my open university groups to the site to see both solar and wind. The visitor centre will be great for these groups.

Strong cross-winds are great for the turbines and so is sun for the solar panels but visitors are not so hardy. A shelter and some facilities would make the site a pleasure to visit and increase the opportunity for learning.
