About Community Power Electricity

Community Power has been operating in the Irish market since November 2019, and was born from Templederry Wind Farm in Co Tipperary - the first community owned wind farm in Ireland.

It’s made up of a partnership of community energy groups with a shared goal - to ensure Ireland has a sustainable energy future.

Community Power believes that the Irish people should have their own stake in renewable power and it wants to share the benefits that renewable energy can bring, with communities in Ireland.

How does Community Power generate electricity?

Community Power buys renewable electricity from some small hydro and wind generators across Ireland, and it’s sold for use in homes, businesses, farms and community buildings.

The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) requires that electricity suppliers disclose the sources they use to generate their energy each year. If suppliers choose not to make a declaration, they are allocated the residual fuel mix, which is the fuel mix left over from the All Island fuel mix after individual supplier’s fuel mixes have been calculated. For 2019, Community Power was allocated the residual fuel mix.

  • Gas 45.3%
  • Renewable 34.8%
  • Coal 6.5%
  • Peat 10.4%
  • Other 3%

Carbon dioxide emissions: 405 kg CO2 per MWh
National average is 254 kg CO2 per MWh
