This 9.2MW wind farm in North Antrim consists of four Enercon E82 turbines. Glenbuck has been operational since 2017 and is situated close to our 27.6MW Long Mountain wind farm near Dunloy.
The two wind farms combined generate enough renewable electricity to meet the average annual electricity demands of more than 27,700 homes.
We will post operational and maintenance updates here.
Combined Long Mountain/Glenbuck community benefit fund
Long Mountain and Glenbuck wind farms operate a combined community benefit fund, totalling around £56,000 a year. The wind farm fund is administered by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland on behalf of Energia.
Last year, Glarryford Young Farmers’ Club in North Antrim applied for a £3,200 grant to support a local arts festival, which was organised by local volunteers.
Gillian Reid, Deputy President, said, “We weren’t able to get together or fundraise during the Covid pandemic. Our local young people are really keen to make up for lost time and meet up again regularly now. The arts festival provides a great opportunity to get up on stage, sing, dance and, most importantly, connect and have fun.”
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:
