Energia Renewables is now in the final stages of construction of its Hollyford wind farm in west Tipperary, where all its turbines are now erected and will start exporting power shortly. Having cost €18m to develop, this farm’s three wind turbines will generate 9MWs of power.
Energia’s total investment in Hollyford and the recently acquired windfarms will be excess of €100m. Energia is now supplying over 600 megawatts (MWs) from renewable sources. Peter Baillie, Managing Director, Energia Renewables said: “We’ve received a lot of support from the local communities and we’re very grateful for this. Our new wind farms are a very positive step forward for renewable energy. All of our wind farm developments bring significant benefits to the local economies, including job creation, increased rates for the local authorities and improvements to local infrastructure such as roads.”
