Down syndrome Foundation of Madrid visits EDPR
As an activity of the Global Wind Day, a group of students from the Down Syndrome Foundation of Madrid visited one of EDPR wind farms. In continuing a relationship between the foundation and EDPR that has been established via other activities, more than 20 students from the foundation visited Altos de Voltoya and were able to explore the inside of one of the 80 turbines. On their tour, the students learned how the wind is turned into energy that reaches our homes daily. EDPR wanted to show the children and their caretakers how its wind farms work and the benefits they bring to the environment and to the production of clean energy. Besides the educational component, the initiative provided an opportunity to promote social integration and outreach to the community.
