Mainstream’s strongest hints yet on where turbines are to go

Mainstream Energy, the company behind the Energy Bridge proposal to erect 400 wind turbines across the midlands as Phase 1 of its commitment to supply 5GW of energy into the UK, has this week given its strongest hints yet on where the Westmeath turbines are to go.

A map released by the firm shows three sites in Westmeath – one west of Lough Ennell, in what looks to be the Dysart area; one in the Raharney area, and one around Kinnegad.

In addition, the firm has announced that in September, it will hold formal all-day information clinics at thirteen different venues across five counties for members of the public. There are two be two such days in Westmeath, one at Dysart, and one at Raharney. Also of interest to Westmeath residents will be the information day at Rhode, also scheduled for September.

The company has said that its Phase 1 study area covers 135 square km over seven counties, but that the final area submitted for planning will be significantly reduced as the environmental assessment progresses.
