Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work at a wind farm or hydro generator? Well wonder no more because the On the road with AEMO video tour is now ready for your viewing pleasure!

On 2 May, 17 AEMO employees from across our offices gathered in New South Wales to kick start their bus tour of Taralga Windfarm and Snowy Hydro, and learn more about the different types of generation resources.

The tour granted our employees (and you) an all access pass to the generation equipment and control rooms, and showcased just what it takes to generate power for the world’s longest interconnected power system.
 
Thanks to the generosity of Pacific Hydro (owners of Taralga Windfarm) and Snowy Hydro, our journey was filled with plenty of first-hand operational experience, and of course, plenty of questions. 

You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s hoping the footage of our tour is worth a million more!

Happy watching.
