Planning & GRID Connection
All projects must go through the normal planning procedures in Ireland. Windturbines.ie undertake full planning applications for wind turbines. Planning Permission applications are completed by our experienced in house planning consultants. Currently we have planning applications submitted in Ireland - Cork, Kerry, Mayo and internationally in Scotland.
We have completed a Joint Venture with Alpha Wind, Ireland and Eurocape holdings in Cape Town, South Africa to develop up to 1000MW of installed wind farm capacity in South Africa and hope to submit up to 20 projects for planning in the near future. For more information on the South Africa project click here.
Grid Connections must also be submitted to ESB Networks / Eirgrid. We submit wind turbine connection applications for the current Gate queing process, Auto production connections and applications for turbine connections less than 500KW in Size. Currently grid application submissions for projects less than 500Kw are taking approx 3 - 6 months to complete.
We also have the skills to complete planning and grid application studies in international countries. Our grid engineers are skilled in the USA, UK, European and African grid codes.
