Aikengall II Community Wind Farm comprises of 19 Siemens Direct Drive wind turbines. These wind turbines have a tip height of 145 metres and a generating capacity of 3.2 MW.

Environmental Benefits

Aikengall II Community Wind Farm will generate enough electricity to power approximately 40,000 homes and will displace around 68,700 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide per annum.

Economic Benefits

Aikengall II Community Wind Farm will provide annual community benefit funding equivalent to £5,000 per MW of installed capacity for the planning permission of the wind farm. Based on an installed capacity of 60.8 MW, this equates to £304,000 per annum, totalling around £7.6 million during the 25 year operational period, for the local host communities.
