The Seven Hills Windfarm Project site lies within the area of Dysart, County Roscommon. The proposed development consists of approximately 21 wind turbines with a typical output of 5-6 megawatts per turbine - enough to provide around 85,000 Irish households with renewable electricity every year.
UPDATE: You can download a copy of our latest project brochure here.
UPDATE: You can also view the draft site layout in more detail here, using the zoom control.
The proposed wind farm will give rise to a range of beneﬁts, including up to 100 construction jobs. It will also create permanent operation and maintenance roles, as well as ancillary functions.
There will be a substantial community beneﬁt fund to help support local community projects and ensure that residents beneﬁt directly from the renewable energy development. The fund will be administered in accordance with Irish Wind Energy Association (IWEA) best practice and grants will be made available after one year of wind farm operation.
When can we see the planned wind farm layout?
UPDATE: We are now consulting the local community on the draft turbine layout, which you can view in more detail by clicking here and using the zoom control.
We have sent details to householders living within 2km of the proposed site and we are holding consultation clinics for members of the public to book appointments with the team in local community centres - in line with continuing social distancing advice and public health guidance.
