Local wind energy company, Simple Power, yesterday announced the completion of several new wind energy projects across Northern Ireland. 

 The wind turbines, situated on farms in Counties Down, Antrim, Tyrone and Londonderry, are part of the company’s continued build and energisation programme that is empowering Northern Ireland with clean, green renewable energy.

  Philip Rainey, Chief Executive, Simple Power commented: “Our energisation programme is helping to meet Northern Ireland’s energy needs, using the natural power of wind to generate renewable energy for the local electricity grid.   

 “While the closure of the Northern Ireland Renewables Obligation (NIRO) subsidy scheme in June was disappointing, we are working extremely hard to develop those projects that meet the eligibility criteria. Despite the many constraints, we remain committed to wind energy which we believe has a vital role to play in our country’s energy mix.”

 A locally-founded company, Simple Power’s 250kW wind turbines are distributed in rural locations across Northern Ireland, powering the grid while also providing local farmers with an additional source of income. The company is currently working through its full project portfolio to assess all wind turbine proposals in line with the key criteria for development – planning permission and NIE grid connection.  

 Stephen McCully, Managing Director of Power NI added: “We welcome the launch of Simple Power’s new turbines across Northern Ireland. Our relationships with power providers like Simple Power are pivotal in guaranteeing a secure energy future and ensuring renewable energy is firmly part of the energy market.”

 Simple Power believes renewables have a key role to play in helping to reduce Northern Ireland’s carbon footprint and dependency on fossil fuels and providing a secure and dependable energy structure for the future. Following the closure of the NIRO scheme, the company continues to consult with government and is closely monitoring and assessing opportunities that may arise in the future for renewables in Northern Ireland.
