They started as Templederry Wind Farm in Co Tipperary - the first community-owned wind farm in Ireland - and now work in partnerships throughout Ireland to supply renewable energy for local communities.

How does Community Power generate electricity?

The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) requires that electricity suppliers disclose the sources they use to generate their energy each year.

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

Their goal is to generate Irish, community-owned renewable energy instead of offsetting international renewable generation to improve their Fuel Mix credentials.

The fuel mix used by Community Power in 2021 is outlined below.
