Through our Corneen Wind Farm on the Slieve Rushen mountain, near Ballyconnell in County Cavan, we make around €6,000 per year available for local projects promoting energy efficiency and social sustainability through our Community Fund programme.

In 2023, due to the increasing level of demand for this Community Fund, SSE Renewables has taken the decision to start awarding funding from the Corneen Community Fund every two years rather than every year to maximise funding opportunities. The new biannual fund for 2023 and 2024 was circ. €10,000.

Corneen Wind Farm has a total generation capacity of 3MW and produces enough renewable energy to power almost 2,000 homes in the region.
