Wind farm to power IKEA’s Dublin and Belfast stores
It is already being built by Irish energy firm Mainstream Renewable Power, which has been chosen to operate and maintain the plant for its 20-year life cycle.
Located in Carrickeeny, North West Leitrim, the 7.65MW wind farm – to be completed early next year – will consist of four turbines and have an expected annual production of 25GWh of electricity – equivalent to powering around 5,500 homes a year.
The news comes just a week after a Japanese firm invested €100 million for a holding in the renewable energy company.
IKEA will sell electricity generated by the wind farm to another Irish energy firm Vayu, which will supply it to the retailer’s stores under a 15-year contract.
