Community Wind Project

Community Wind Project Planned for Ireland, Limerick, Ireland

A wind energy development co-operative, based in County Clare, Ireland has announced plans to construct one of Ireland's largest wind farms.

West Clare Renewable Energy Ltd. (WCRE) says it hopes to construct 30 3-megawatt (MW) wind turbines on the slopes of Mount Callan, a 391-meter high mountain located between Ennis and Miltown Malbay.

The landowners have a majority shareholding in the company and have also included a significant community fund aspect to the project.

The company claims the proposed €200 million project would be capable of generating enough electricity to power every home and business in County Clare, as well as meeting the Limerick Clare Energy Agency’s 2010 targets for emissions reductions and renewable energy production. The project is expected to provide up to 300 jobs during the construction phase.

WCRE is comprised of renewable energy firm West Clare Renewables and 30 farm families who collectively own 3,000 acres of primarily upland properties on Mount Callan. The landowners have a majority shareholding in the company and have also included a significant community fund aspect to the project.
