A windfarm, estimated to be valued at €38 million, has begun construction work.

A wind farm, granted planning permission recently, has begun construction work on the multi-million euro project.

The project is estimated to be valued at €38 million and will create up to 50 jobs in the area. The wind farm will be developed in Ballycumber Co. Wicklow. The farm will be made up of six separate wind turbines, which will have a capacity of 19.2mW.

It is not thought to have any impact on local residents or homes when it begins operations. No turbines will be closer than 1kms from any residence, limiting noise pollution problems. The first energy from the windfarm is expected to be produced in early 2018.

The company in charge say the farm will be able to provide energy for almost 12,000 homes, while they also say it will result in the decrease in carbon emissions by over 28,000 tonnes. The company say they will also provide annual contributions to local schools.
