Summer wind farm tours - come visit us!

Who is this tour for? 
Everyone! Your tour of the Facility will be geared to the age level and specific interests of your group. Note: we welcome all, but this tour may be more appropriate for kids age 8 and up.

What will you see there? 
Right here in New Jersey, ACUA’s Wastewater Treatment Facility is the largest hybrid wind and solar powered treatment facility in the world! The wind farm is the first commercial development of its kind in the state, as well as the first coastal and urban wind farm in the nation. 


Between ACUA’s wind and solar projects on site, a significant amount of completely renewable energy is produced each day. The really exciting part? You can get an up close and personal view of the wind turbines (each measuring more than 380 ft from the ground to the blade’s tip—wow!), see 500 kilowatts worth of solar arrays, and learn how we treat wastewater. 
Your tour will last about 1 hour.
