Irish renewable firm Gaelectric has opened a 6MW onshore wind farm in Ireland.
Faughary Wind Farm, located in Leitrim, will generate enough power to meet the needs of 4,000 homes.
It is the company’s second wind farm in the Republic of Ireland and its fourth on the island – bringing its total operating portfolio to 66MW.
Barry Gavin, Head of Wind Energy at Gaelectric Group, said: “Faughary will make a significant contribution to the renewable energy generation in County Leitrim and the West of Ireland and represents a €6 million (£4.3m) investment in renewable energy in the County.”
The firm aims to build a 400MW portfolio of operating wind energy assets by 2017.
