We’re building more renewables on our land

See what we’re doing

NI Water can help reduce its requirement for fossil fuel generated electricity and cut society's harmful CO2 emissions. This can be done by working with planners and the local community to place renewable generation at a select number of suitable sites.

With third party expertise and funding, this could deliver as much as 200 megawatts of output – equivalent to one third of a local power station’s capacity. The income from leasing the associated land will also generate around £2m–£3m of income per annum, helping to keep the cost of water services down and easing the funding-pressure for government. So, using NI Water’s land can help to generate more green energy.
