Irish Farmers to use wind farm energy

The Irish Farmers Association which is one of the two main farmer representation bodies in Ireland has reached an agreement with the wind farm company Airtricity for the group purchase of electricity for farmers.
150 farmers have agreed to switch their electricity supply to Airtricity, the reason for this switch is a saving of between 5% and 10% on their electricity costs.
At Tipperary Institute our Sustainable Rural Development department is involved with a number of key projects in the area of Biomass, wind energy. In Tipperary a number of wind turbines have been erected and more are on the way.
