Press release: Greens welcome Fingal move to renewable energy

The Green Party welcomed Fingal County Council’s formal announcement today (Friday 3rd June) that it has switched its two largest electricity consuming locations, representing 15% of its total electricity consumption, – Swords and Blanchardstown –  to wind-generated electricity.    The switch will also mean a saving of 5% in the electricity bills.

Cllr. David Healy (Howth ward) said:  When  we raised this at the Council meeting in January this year, we were encouraged by the positive response from Council management.  We are very pleased to see that they have followed through with the initiative as promised and we look forward to the rest of the Council’s electricity supply contracts being switched to renewable sources of electricity as they come up for renewal and renegotiation.
