Introduction to the Mullingar Sustainable Energy Community
The Mullingar Sustainable Energy Community (SEC) has a powerful story to tell about the future of Mullingar.
It starts with the challenge that faces us all: how can we reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and transition to renewable sources of energy while benefiting the whole community economically, socially and environmentally?
The Mullingar SEC is rising to that challenge and it has a plan.
Mullingar Sustainable Energy Community (SEC) was formed in 2018, supported by the Mullingar Chamber of Commerce, with the objective of encouraging the local community to become more energy efficient and to source renewable energy where possible. More information see: https://mullingarsec.ie
The network of Sustainable Energy Communities, supported by SEAI, is growing in County Westmeath, and includes the Columb Barracks SEC (also in Mullingar), Castlepollard SEC, and others which have demonstrated significant and widespread community interest in the utilisation of local natural resources in a sustainable way.
