Since March 2018 our Project Team has been engaging the local community and key stakeholders. This has involved door to door consultation, distribution of materials and public information sessions.
Given current COVID-19 restrictions, we are hosting a virtual public exhibition ahead of our application submission.
The exhibition can be accessed here.
This provides the opportunity to view and comment on the proposals.
We hope that local residents and interested parties will take part.
If you are unable to access the digital exhibition please email email@example.com or call 021 471 3932.
We can post printed materials to you, or help you access the online exhibition.
Coom Green Energy Park will bring significant local benefits. We want to work with the communities closest to Coom Green Energy Park to identify ideas and initiatives that would benefit from support.
It is anticipated that the community benefit fund could deliver over €500,000 per year for the first 15 years following the commissioning of the project. We hope that this will help to address current and emerging needs and opportunities locally – helping to develop and support sustainable communities.
We are currently investigating how Coom Green Energy Park can help to improve connectivity locally. This includes undertaking a feasibility assessment on local broadband provision. We hope that such an assessment will identify whether connectivity in the area could benefit from upgrading, and how the wind farm can help to support this. We hope to have more information on this in the near future.
If you are interested in discussing the Community Benefit Fund further please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage people to contact and seek advice and information from independent public bodies with an expertise in relation to renewable energy projects. See below a list of some organisations that can provide independent information on renewable energy projects.
