Information about San Lorenzo Wind Farm
San Lorenzo Wind Farm
The 54-megawatt San Lorenzo Wind Farm is the first of its kind in the Visayas region and stretches up to 14 kilometers, making it one of the biggest wind farms in Southeast Asia. This farm comprises 27 wind turbines that each stand at about 123 meters tall, with each turbine generating around 2 megawatts of power. Thus, producing a total of 54 megawatts of renewable energy. The farm started operating in 2014 and has since been producing renewable energy distributed to Western Visayas, Negros, and Cebu. Aside from being a renewable energy source, the farm has also become a popular tourist attraction in the province. While visiting here, you can learn how renewable energy works while admiring the view of the turbines across the picturesque landscape. For a better view of the surroundings, you can head up to Lookout Point Number Seventeen or WTF No. 17. From there, you can get a fantastic view of the wind turbines. It is also a great spot to enjoy the sunset.
Best time to visit
It's recommended to visit the wind farm in the summer months (March to May) so you can get a clear view of the turbines without any rainfall.
