Irish 21st Century Windmills - Electricity for the Island

Pretty much anywhere I go in Ireland, off in the distance I see wind turbines. Yesterday, I found a road that, I am told, will take me to the ones closest to me. I'll keep you advised.......

According to the Irish Wind Energy Assn:

- There are 176 such wind farms operating in 27 of the 32 counties in Ireland.

- Capable of supplying enough electricity for over 1.3 million home , as of July 2012, 14.8% of Irish electricity is being generated from renewable sources, up from 5% in 1990, with wind being the main source of such production.
