In line with ongoing company strategy, Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm on the Ballydermot Bog Group located in Counties Kildare and Offaly. The proposed development study area comprises of 14 bogs, known as the Ballydermot Bog Group. The Bog Group is close to the communities of Allenwood, Clonbullogue, Derrinturn, Edenderry and Rathangan. The proposed development will be known as Ballydermot Wind Farm.
Bord na Móna lands extend to approximately 80,000 hectares in total and are located mainly in the Irish Midlands. In 2011, our ‘Strategic Framework for the Future Use of Peatlands’ considered how we could use our land resources for a sustainable future. We recognise that cutaway peatlands have significant potential for the development of wind energy.
We intend to develop the proposed wind farm on the Ballydermot Bog in Counties Kildare and Offaly.
