Today, Pat Kenny left his broadcasting studio to speak with Brendan Connolly, the Business Development Manager of Powergen Development at Bord na Móna. Standing under a working turbine, Pat and Brendan discussed the electricity generation capacity at Mountlucas, and also some statistics about the size of the turbines.
The topics of propellor noise, light flicker, and the control systems in place to protect the surrounding residents were discussed. So too was the site’s function as a free walking and cycling amenity, the Benefit Fund for the local community, along with many other subjects.
