Onshore wind farm Dunbeg South will pay more than £14 million in business rates over its lifetime, paving the way for a ‘Green Economic Recovery’ for Causeway, Coast and Glens.

Garth McGimpsey, RES’ Project Manager, said: “Causeway, Coast and Glens Borough Council has identified the energy sector as a key opportunity for attracting investment and Dunbeg South will help to deliver on this by providing significant economic benefit for the local area. It will also help us achieve the rapid energy transition required, with the electricity produced contributing to the ambitious interim target of 70% electricity from renewable energy by 2030, set by the Department for the Economy.”

The benefits of wind energy to Northern Ireland consumers are clear. A recent study by Baringa Partners showns that renewable electricity from wind has delivered a payback of £4 to every consumer every year since 2000 – driving down wholesale costs and reducing fuel imports.
