Northern Irish wind energy firm Simple Power officially launched two new turbines today, heralding the start of rolling out at least 200 turbines across Northern Ireland.

The ceremonial ribbon was cut on the 250kW turbines on farmland in County Tyrone which are to be followed by more over the next four years.

Chief Executive of Simple Power, Philip Rainey said: “It’s an important occasion not only for Simple Power but for local farmers William McCrea and Noel McFarland, who have been able to turn a piece of their land into a reliable and sustainable source of income from wind energy for the next 20 years.”

Philip Carson from electricity supplier Power NI added: “Our relationships with power providers like Simple Power help us build on strong links with both the farming and agricultural sector and are pivotal in ensuring Northern Ireland has a more secure energy future.”
