Yellow River

Yellow River Wind Farm is a 29-turbine wind farm development in central Ireland with an installed capacity in excess of 100MW.

SSE Renewables commenced construction on the wind farm in October 2022, with the expected completion date in  2024. The project is expected to support up to 80 full-time construction jobs at peak delivery.

Once completed, the windfarm will be capable of generating enough green energy to power over 66,000 homes and offset over 70 Million Kg of carbon dioxide annually. This will help Ireland meet its target of 80% renewable energy by 2030, as set out under the Climate Action Plan of 2021.

Our focus is now on building strong and meaningful relationships with the local community surrounding the Yellow River Wind Farm.

As a responsible developer and operator, we are looking forward to working closely with the community in Rhode and North Offaly to fully realise the benefits of this exciting project.
