Energy Generation Scheme

BRIEF: To install all equipment for a large scale energy generation scheme.

We are pleased to be nominated electrical contractor in this ground breaking project which is the first of its kind in Ireland and only the second in Europe. This South County Dublin parish was selected as a test bed for community energy generation and sharing. Several forms of energy generation such as wind turbines, hydro turbines and photo-voltaic panels will be combined to create energy and sell it cheaply from neighbour to neighbour on the ESB's networks.

Over the course of the year the different forms of energy generation will have varying outputs, obviously during the summer months the photovoltaic panels will reach their maximum output and the winter will see maximum output from the wind and hydro turbines. All energy is used by the community members and any unused energy is stored in large battery banks for future high demand periods.

Local home owners, a school, a community centre and GAA club have combined their resources for this exciting community project.
