I enjoyed learning about how they work. Windmills sure have come a long way! While I don't really like the looking at the windmill farms they are effective at harnessing wind for power.

In the hill area just before one gets to the downtown area of Palm Springs, one finds the windmill farm. Sometimes it is very windy through this area. I find it awesome to see them.

The windmill farm seems to be biggest in california. It must be providing sufficient elecrtical,power to palm spring region. It is felt that poluutuon is minimul in this area. One feel very happy to see such use of nonconventional energy.

You must book this attraction in advance. It's a little pricey, but we totally enjoyed it. It's definitely something different. Randy, our tour guide was great. He gave us the history and really explained everything. We got to see the windmills up close and personal. They are very cool. Who knew there were so many different kinds? I definitely recommend...

We did not take an organized tour to see them, but you can't miss them driving the I10 north. We saw them from Joshua Tree National Park, and when we went up the Tramway. It is an amazing sight. So many!

It was very interesting to see all the windmills along I-10. This is certainly the "green" way to go.

We took the "Best of the Best" tour of the Coachella Valley Wind Farms. You will see hundreds up close and be informed about the geology that produces the wind, the Native Americans' presence in the area (past and present), wind science and how it contributes to the electric grid, how wind power affects jobs and the economy and more....
