The Project

The purpose of the Ballydermot Wind Farm is to generate renewable electricity for the domestic electricity market in Ireland.

Community Benefits

We ensure that local communities in the area benefit from the development of our wind farms by providing various benefits arising from their construction and operation.

Communications

We are committed to continuing to keep local residents informed about the proposed wind farm.

Compliance

Fulfilment of statutory and regulatory obligations is at the forefront of the Ballydermot Wind Farm project.

Wind Energy

Wind generated 32% of all electricity in Ireland in 2019, second only to natural gas.

Ireland has a national target to move to 70% renewable electricity by 2030.

In 2019, wind generated more than three times the energy in Ireland than that of coal, peat and oil combined.
