Ireland’s unique position on the edge of the Atlantic offers ESB the opportunity to leverage wind energy strength, both onshore and offshore, crucial in Ireland’s transition to a renewable energy future.
Grousemount Wind Farm, operated by the wholly-owned subsidiary of ESB, Kerry Wind Farm, is the latest milestone in building a renewable energy portfolio for the country.
The development of large-scale renewable projects such as Grousemount Wind Farm requires significant investment, close collaboration with suppliers and contractors, and most importantly, the support of surrounding local communities.
What We'll Deliver
In 2017, construction commenced with the development of a 110 kV substation. Once fully completed, Grousemount will be ESB’s largest onshore wind farm, providing 114 MW of power from the 38 wind turbines at the site. This generation capacity will have the ability to power more than 70,000 homes, farms and businesses across Ireland.
