Energia will hold a public webinar this evening as part of its initial consultation on the South Irish Sea offshore wind project.

The webinar will take place from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. to discuss the wind farm proposals in Wexford and south Wicklow and all interested parties are invited to join online to learn more about the project and ask questions.

The South Irish Sea project is proposed to be located at a minimum of 10km and up to 25km off the coast and the project aims to decarbonise Ireland’s energy supply, reduce emissions, and help to achieve Ireland’s 2030 climate action and offshore wind energy targets. The project will generate electricity for the equivalent of over 500,000 homes.
