Meenadreen Community Awards
We at Energia love to give back to communities around Ireland through our Community Benefit Funds and especially to communities located around our Renewable Energy windfarms. Our Meenadreen windfarm, situated across the beautiful Bluestack Mountains of South West Donegal powers up to 50,000 homes – reducing Ireland’s CO2 emissions by 100,000 tonnes a year!

Without this powerful and clean renewable energy resource and the co-operation of the community in Donegal, this wee achievement would not be possible.
The community around the vicinity of Meenadreen Wind Farm near Donegal town are active in many voluntary and community based programmes.
We recently opened the grant application for the Meenadreen community fund and the application process is now complete. Entrants are being evaluated for the €60,000 available. Yes - 60K!
Reviewing this year's applications has not been easy, there are so many fantastic groups. But we have refined our shortlist and we are very near to picking the final awardees of this year's funding.
There has been a wide range of applications looking for both short and long term (3 yr) funding.
We will be updating this post with the winners of this community funding very shortly in early September and we'll have the details of their schemes and programmes.
Best of luck to all!
Energia Community Team.
