Construction begins on Bord na Móna's latest wind farm
Bord na Móna is delighted to announce that construction has started on our latest wind farm. Once completed, the €100m project at Cloncreen, Co Offaly, will supply 55,000 homes with renewable energy every year.
This is the latest step in Bord na Móna’s ongoing commitment as a leader in the development of renewable energy in Ireland, and part of our €1.6bn investment in climate action projects that will enable us to supply approximately one-third of Irish homes with renewable energy by 2030.
Cloncreen Wind Farm will start supplying renewable energy to the national grid in early 2022.
In addition to the 21 state-of-the-art turbines at the wind farm, Bord na Móna will also create 20kms of walkways and cycleways throughout the beautiful, 960 hectares rehabilitated peatland site as a public amenity for recreation for locals and visitors.
