The people I meet who service our turbines are special: They`re proud of what they do, and they take their jobs very seriously. It`s not an easy environment to work in. When you`ve experienced standing on the top of an 80m high turbine, swaying in the wind like a ship at sea, you really respect what they do. It takes a cool head and a lot of courage.

Wind Turbines are Cheap
Wind energy is currently the largest contributing resource of renewable energy in Ireland. It is both Ireland’s largest and cheapest renewable electricity resource. In 2018 Wind provided 85% of Ireland’s renewable electricity and 30% of our total electricity demand. It is the second greatest source of electricity generation in Ireland after natural gas. Ireland is one of the leading countries in its use of wind energy and 3rd place worldwide in 2018, after Denmark and Uruguay. Statistics on wind energy can be found in SEAI’s Energy in Ireland and Renewable Energy in Ireland reports. A detailed annual update on the status of wind energy in Ireland and globally can be found in the IEA Wind Annual report.

Wind turbines that meet the required European and international standards are listed on the SEAI Triple E register for accredited energy efficient equipment. Listed wind turbines qualify for a favourable depreciation regime for corporation tax under the Accelerated Capital Allowances scheme, V.A.T. refunds for the installation of wind turbines for agricultural use by farmers and must be used in all public procurement of wind turbines. The primary support for wind energy is the Renewable Energy Feed in Tariff (REFIT). This scheme guarantees a price for wind energy output for fifteen years.
