About Community Power Electricity

Community Power has been operating in the Irish market since November 2019. Their mission is to support Ireland to run on clean, renewable power.

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.

Community Power believes that the Irish people should have their own stake in renewable energy and want 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 sell it 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 automatically allocated the residual fuel mix, which is the fuel mix left over from the All Island fuel mix after the individual supplier’s fuel mixes have been calculated.

However, their goal is to generate Irish community-owned renewable energy as opposed to offsetting international renewable generation to improve their Fuel Mix credentials.

For 2020, Community Power was allocated the residual fuel mix.
