The Seven Hills Windfarm Project site lies within the area of Dysart, County Roscommon. The proposed development consists of approximately 21 wind turbines with a typical output of 5-6 megawatts per turbine - enough to provide around 85,000* Irish households with renewable electricity every year.
*Based on CRU 2017 average annual household electricity consumption of 4,200kWhr.
Covid-19 update: Community consultation changes
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and in line with government guidance, we’ve postponed all public meetings, face-to-face consultations and door-to-door visits until the restriction of movement has come to an end.
Energia and Galetech are committed to keeping communities safe. We'll be providing information and answering questions using freepost, freephone and online services.
Households within a 2km radius of the proposed development will receive information by post, together with a pre-paid envelope and comment card, which residents can use to request a follow up telephone call from the project team.
To use our freephone service, just dial 1800140232. Don't forget you can also email us. You'll find our contact details at the bottom of this page, where we explain how we use the information you provide.
The proposed wind farm will give rise to a range of beneﬁts, including up to 100 construction jobs. It will also create permanent operation and maintenance roles, as well as ancillary functions.
There will be a substantial community beneﬁt fund to help support local community projects and ensure that residents beneﬁt directly from the renewable energy development. The fund will be administered in accordance with Irish Wind Energy Association (IWEA) best practice and grants will be made available after one year of wind farm operation.
