Installed generation capacity

Culliagh Wind Farm, situated to the west of Ballybofey in County Donegal, was the first wind farm in Ireland to be fully funded by the private sector when it was built in 2000.

Comprising 18 turbines, the wind farm has an installed generation capacity of 11.9MW.

Culliagh Wind Farm can power almost 8,000 homes and help abate over 9,500 tonnes of harmful carbon dioxide per annum.

The Culliagh Community Fund launched in 2000. So far around €220,000 has been presented to groups around the wind farm.

Meentycat and Culliagh Community Fund

Through our Meentycat Wind Farm and the adjoining Culliagh Wind Farm in Co. Donegal we make over €100,000 per year available for local projects through our Community Fund programme and our annual Sponsored Walk, which takes place at the wind farm every September.
