Galetech Energy Developments Ltd., Co.Cavan, have lodged an application for a proposed wind farm in the town-land of Knocknabranagh & Knockbaun, Co.Carlow and Coolcullen, Co.Kilkenny.
This proposed strategic infrastructure project consists of 7 turbines, approximately 180 meters in height with an output of approximately 7-8 Megawatts per turbine of renewable energy.
The White Hill Wind farm project team will continue their engagement with the local community using various methods of contact:
• We have a freephone number 1800 140 240, which you can dial free of charge to request a call back from the project team.
• We have an email address, firstname.lastname@example.org which you can mail mail to request information from the project team.
• We have posted regular updates on our project website at www.whitehillwindfarm.ie/updates
A door to door leaflet drop was completed in December 2022 regarding the planning application
This most recent leaflet can be found here.
There is a substantial community fund administered in accordance with Wind Energy Ireland (WEI) best practice and grants will be made available after one year of wind farm operation.
White Hill wind farm will play it’s part in assisting in Ireland’s commitment to increase its renewable energy sources in the post 2020 period, with the Government pledging to generate 80% of electricity from renewable sources by 2030 forming part of the new climate action plan.
