€50 Million Wind Farm in County Clare to Proceed

Bord Pleanala has rejected an appeal by An Taisce against a Clare County Council decision to allow Hibernian Windpower to construct a wind farm incorporating 11 turbines of approximately 2500kW capacity each, at Boolynageragh, Lissycasey.

The development site, which is 3 kilometres north of Lissycasey, will have total rated electrical output of 27.5MW. The capital cost of the project is up to €50m.

The development is in line with the ESB’s policy to achieve 33% of generation from renewable resources by 2020, including 1,400 MW from wind generation.
