Project At A Glance

  • A wind energy development that would compliment and benefit the permitted Derrykillew Community Wind Farm
  • It would consist of up to 7 turbines
  • The maximum tip height will be up to 150 m
  • It would have the potential to provide clean green electricity for approx. 20,000 homes
  • There will be an on-site substation
  • Materials will be sourced locally where possible with an on-site borrow pit
  • The provision for a significant community fund which would benefit the wider local area
  • A community investment opportunity with priority for people living within 5 km of the development

Details were released on the 24th July 2018 on the new Renewable Energy Support Scheme which is to come into place going forward. This scheme requires a community contribution of €2/MWhr which would equate to approximately €160,000 per annum. This funding would be available for the local area and would present a significant opportunity to bring real and tangible benefits to the local area.
