Located in the middle of the Wild Horse Wind and Solar Facility, the Renewable Energy Center allows visitors to see how the energy of the wind and sun are turned into electricity. Displays in the exhibit area highlight wind and solar technology, as well as the area’s unique natural history. Set high on a ridge above the Kittitas Valley, Puget Sound Energy's Renewable Energy Center offers up-close views of the wind turbines and solar arrays, local wildlife, and the Cascade mountain range. The center is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily from April through November, weather permitting. A conference room accommodating 48 people and a kitchen area are available for group use. Presentations and tours can be arranged in advance for larger groups. Daily tours to the base of the turbines are offered at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
