Sinn Féin’s local election candidate in Loughgiel & Armoy has encouraged residents in close proximity of the planned Altnaveedan Wind Farm to ensure they are registered for a discount to their electricity bill.
Kieran Mulholland explained: “The planning application of this Wind Farm proved controversial, but since it has been approved I would encourage all eligible residents in Glenbush to ensure they are in line to receive the £200 discount offered by RES.
“Recently, RES distributed their ‘Altnaveedan Wind Farm Construction Newsletter 1’ around the area. However, several constituents who I was in contact with hadn’t received this update. I have been in contact with RES who explained that a letter was distributed last year detailing how people could register for the discount but not all residents responded. Any residential or commercial building within 2.7km of the Wind Farm is entitled to the discount and in order to check if you have been registered or how you can register you can contact Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0800 011 3341.”
