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 Littleton Bog located in County Tipperary. This Bog Group is close to the communities of Gortnahoe, Littleton, New Birmingham, Twomileborris and Urlingford.
The proposed development will be known as Littleton Wind Farm.
We intend to develop the proposed wind farm on the Littleton Bog in County Tipperary.
Bord na Móna has selected a study area for the proposed Littleton Wind Farm
We are committed to keeping the local community informed about the project with regular updates, information about public events and newsletters.
