Yesterday the Good Energies team went to Mount Lucas windfarm, Co. Offaly where we had a tour of the 28 3MW turbines and also attended an informative and colourful presentation by Pat Fitzgerald from Bord Na Móna about their renewable energy projects, which include solar and biomass as well as wind.

Our team were amazed at how quiet the turbines were. No doubt they were a new feature on the landscape, definitely not everybody might think they are beautiful, but the GEAI team thought they were appropriate in the context of the use of cutaway bog, 850 metres from the nearest habitation.
