Energy & Carbon Emissions

Energy

Our small wind turbine (11kW) which we installed in 2012 has produced a total of over 62,500KwH, an average of just under 43KwH per day. Consider the average house in Ireland consumes 9.04KwH per day this is equivalent to powering just under 5 houses per day.

The graph outlines the energy generated by the wind turbine since it was installed (in kilowatt-hours):

62,636KwH

Over the past couple of years we have investigated options for the installation of an additional wind turbine. Over 2015, we completed a bird survey and plan to add additional information to this survey during 2016. A specification was circulated for tender in Dec 2015 for the installation of a Met Mast to enable us to analyse relevant parameters (e.g. wind speed) to determine the suitability of the proposed wind turbine location.
