Killibegs Windsite owned by SMR Windparks. A little over ten years ago Michael Rouse was working as an electrical engineer for a utility company and Seamus Mc Rory was working as an accountant. Their financial interest in the possibilities of wind energy development brought them together and they now operate SMR Windparks. SMR Windparks has several sites in Ireland and internationally. Seamus believes that a secure energy supply is essential for Ireland and 'oil is going out.' In the mean time, if the solution is good for the environment, so much the better. Through their involvement with wind energy they have seen significant improvements in their quality of life. They are more financially secure, more independent and currently own some nice valuable assets.
