Cornavarrow Wind Farm, near Drumquin in County Tyrone, was constructed in 2018. It consists of 12 GE 3.2 turbines which have a tip height of 125m. With a total capacity of 38.4MW, this wind farm generates enough renewable electricity to meet the average annual electricity needs of more than 30,000 homes.
We will post operational and maintenance updates here.
Cornavarrow and Slieveglass Community Benefit Fund
We want local people to see and feel the benefit of renewable energy through our community benefit funds, which support community groups, voluntary organisations and environmental projects situated near our wind farms.
We have set up a joint Cornavarrow and Slieveglass community benefit fund, which is administered by the Fermanagh Trust on behalf of Energia. Over the 25-year lifetime of the two wind farms, the fund will provide £2.4 million in community grants.
Last year, the fund supported 16 local community projects to the tune of over £100,000.
Working with schools
It’s breath-taking to see a wind turbine up close. The Energia Renewables Operations team are happy to facilitate school visits or classroom talks on wind energy:
