Worcester Business Journal – Ameresco launches Ireland wind farm

Framingham energy company Ameresco has begun commercial operations at the Beale Hill Wind Farm in County Kerry, Ireland, the company announced on Wednesday.

The launch marks Ameresco’s first company-owned-and-operated wind power project, as well as its first renewable generation asset outside of the United States and Canada.

Ameresco acquired the wind farm from the Irish electric company First Electric before overseeing various upgrades, including nacelle, generator and rotor arm replacements.

In a press release, the company underscored the project was not reliant on any subsidy via tariffs or consumer levies.
