The history and what they now produce. Also, how large they are when you're up close! I always wanted to see them up close and learn more about what they can and can't do.

Very interesting

We enjoyed the historical video and the self driving tour but we would have enjoyed more detail, perhaps a model, of how the turbine / brake / propeller system works, the science behind blade optimization and the future vision for wind turbines - what areas of the world they could be expanded into, what weather geography is need for them to work etc.

Excellent educational tour. Such delightful owners. Learned so much about the history, technology, contributions to zero emissions energy of the future. Very nice tour. And don’t miss the date shakes at the little out of the way shop they suggested at the end of the tour. So much more to the experience than I would have imagined. Highly recommended to help visitors understand the area of the Cochella valley
