Powering Green Together

Bord na Móna and SSE Renewables have launched a 50:50 joint venture which will target the delivery of up to 800MW of new renewable onshore wind energy across the Midlands.

This partnership includes the proposed Garryhinch Wind Farm located in Laois -Offaly. Since the first announcement of this proposed wind farm in 2021, Bord na Móna has appointed a project Community Engagement and Stakeholder Team including a designated Community Liaison Officer to engage with local communities and near neighbours. This team remains in place and your local Community Liaison Officer, Niall will continue to be available to meet residents as before and is contactable at 087 9951174.

The joint venture partnership is fully committed to continuing to inform and engage with you through an active communication programme. We are finalising the project design currently and will circulate updates to you in the coming months.

The Project

The purpose of the Garryhinch Wind Farm is to generate renewable electricity for the domestic electricity market in Ireland.

Community Benefits

We ensure that local communities in the area benefit from the development of our wind farms by providing various benefits arising from their construction and operation.


We are committed to continuing to keep local residents informed about the proposed wind farm.
