Teiges Wind Farm, near Brookeborough in County Fermanagh, has been operational since 2018 and consists of five GE 2.5 turbines with a total capacity of 11MW.
The wind farm produces enough electricity to power a town the size of nearby Enniskillen and avoids the release of over 11,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year, which is equivalent to taking 5,300 cars off the road.
We will post operational and maintenance updates here.
Teiges Community Benefit Fund
Teiges Wind Farm operates a community benefit fund, which now totals over £58,000 a year. The annual fund is administered by the Fermanagh Trust on behalf of Energia.
Last year, the local Brookeborough preschool group, the Playstation, applied for a grant to help purchase new children’s furniture. In previous funding rounds, the Teiges fund has also helped contribute towards the resurfacing of the play and kitchen area.
Peter Baillie, Managing Director of Energia Renewables, says, “It’s great to see the wide range of community initiatives that our wind farm benefit fund is supporting. We want our funds to have a lasting legacy and, thanks to the Fermanagh Trust, we’re seeing more and more groups coming up with new project ideas to benefit the local community.”
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:
