About Palm Springs Windmill Tours
The Palm Springs Self-Driving Windmill Tours is an interactive, educational and fun tour for friends and family. The tour is curated by Randy Buckmaster, Tour Manager, in which he will guide you along with a video and audio program and marked destination’s throughout the first commercial wind farm in the United States. The tour takes you on a journey of 10 marked stops starting with a display yard of non-operating wind turbines of successes and failures, along with a stop to a real generating wind turbine where you can get up close and take pictures. The tour continues through a solar farm and ends with a stop at the old gas plant. There you can exit on 19th Avenue to Indian Canyon Road more knowledgeable about renewable energy! The tour takes approximately one hour depending on your pace. We ask that you respect others by not gathering at the marked destinations. Please allow cars ahead of you to finish their exploration before your turn. Are you ready to become a wind energy nerd?
