Operational wind farm

Derrysallagh, Co. Sligo

Derrysallagh Windfarm is located in Knockroe, County Sligo.

Site Overview

Derrysallagh Windfarm consists of ten GE 3.2MW turbines with a total capacity of 32MW. It has been operational since July 2020.

The wind farm produces enough electricity to power around 17,500 Irish households every year and avoids the release of just under 29,000 tonnes of carbon emissions, which is equivalent to taking around 9,500 cars off the road.
