This 27.6MW wind farm consists of twelve Enercon E70 turbines and has been operational since 2017.
The development generates enough renewable energy to meet the average annual electricity demands of more than 15,000 homes.
Long Mountain has been chosen as the location for Energia's ground-breaking green hydrogen production pilot, funded by Interreg North West Europe and GENCOMM (GENerating energy secure COMMunities through Smart Renewable Hydrogen).
Watch our short animation to find out more about this exciting project.
Energia has constructed a hydrogen production compound at Long Mountain Wind Farm to provide a sustainable energy solution for heat, power and fuel through electrolysis.
This pilot scheme was funded by Interreg North West Europe through GENCOMM (GENerating energy secure COMMunities through Smart Renewable Hydrogen).
Generating green hydrogen: from wind to wheel
We want local people to see and feel the benefit of renewable energy through our wind farm benefit funds, which support community groups, voluntary organisations and environmental projects situated near our wind farms.
The Long Mountain Wind Farm community benefit fund is administered by the Community Foundation Northern Ireland on behalf of Energia and offers funding to community groups within a five-mile radius of Long Mountain and the nearby Glenbuck Windfarm.
Last year, the Foundation awarded 18 grants, totalling more than £60,000.
Ballymaconnelly Renewal Group play area
The Long Mountain community benefit fund has awarded the Ballymaconnelly Renewal Group a £3,000 grant for a new play area in the group’s community garden, near Rasharkin in County Antrim.
The Renewal Group, which was set up to rebuild a sense of community in the small hamlet of Ballymaconnelly, invited all generations – toddlers, teenagers, young adults, parents and grandparents – to attend the opening ceremony.
Chairman, Ian Brownlow, said, “Over the years, we’ve seen our local shops, post office and petrol station close and it was as if the heart was being stripped out of our community. We are proud of what we’ve achieved over the last decade but we rely on funders like Energia.”
