Galetech Energy Group have provided the following update on their plans for a wind farm in Bracklyn.
I am writing to advise you that we are continuing consultation with the local community around the townland of Bracklin, Co. Westmeath about our planned wind farm proposal to develop a new wind farm of up to a 9 turbines with a typical output of approximately 6 megawatts of green renewable energy per turbine.
We are still exploring every opportunity at this early design stage to continue with its engagement with the local community by providing information and answering questions using free phone and online services.
Please find attached a synopsis of the engagements and updates for 2020 regarding the project.
These updates and all information about the development are posted on our website www.bracklynwindfarm.ie
There will be a substantial Community fund available to the community every year for the lifetime of the wind farm. We have committed to €16,000* per turbine per year minimum and once operational. The Wind farm, also, through its substantial rates contribution, annually will be €700,000 – 1MIillion Euro** to support the provision of local services in the region.
Thanking you and looking forward to our continued consultation with you and the community .
