Ballywater Wind Farm
Ballywater Wind Farm
The Ballywater Wind Farm is located between the villages of Kilmuckridge and Ballygarrett, and is located directly beside Ballinoulart in County Wexford, Ireland. It commenced operation in 2005 and has a capacity of 42 MW and consists of 21 x E70-4 Enercon wind turbines.
The produced Energy in one year is 110 GWh. This equals the yearly consumption of 125,000 people or 31,500 four person households. Within 3.7 months of operation the wind energy converters (WEC) at this site had produced an amount of energy equivalent to that used building and installing the WEC including production of the materials. For the next 20 years the wind farm will be producing electricity without using any resources and without pollution.
