In recent times, Bord na Móna has gone through radical change, announcing the new “Brown to Green” strategy, moving away from peat, and focusing on renewable energy, recycling, and peatland rehabilitation operations. A key objective of this strategy involves using the land to continue to underpin Ireland’s energy independence by developing green, sustainable energy sources to assist with Ireland’s commitment to achieve 70% renewable electricity by 2030.
In line with this strategy, Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm on Oweninny Bog located in North Mayo. The site is situated approximately 12km west of
Crossmolina, 15km east of Bangor Erris, and just north of the N59 national secondary road.
The proposed development will be known as Oweninny Wind Farm Phase 3.
We intend to develop the proposed wind farm on the Oweninny Bog in North Mayo.
