The Downs – Castlepollard – Killucan SEC Energy Master Plan

Jul 15, 2023

The Downs SEC Energy Master Plan is funded and supported by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) as part of it’s Sustainable Energy Communties program

An Energy Master Plan helps communities understand the energy demand and supply. Every community is encouraged to look at energy efficiency first. This is because energy efficiency work is typically low risk and has high payback. The Energy Master Plan is also a live record of the community’s energy status and achievements. It will evolve to form the foundation for other applications and projects. For more information on the SEAI’s Energy Master Plan initiative, please go to this link
