?I was overwhelmed by the level of goodwill and support that we got. I remember the first turbine when it was being lift into place, I counted about 120 people just sitting in the field, it was almost like a picnic, a day out.? Pat Blount. .Business partners, and now friends, Pat Blount (left) and P.J. McCabe (center) sit with P.J?s nephew Daniel Rundel (right) in Collon, Ireland. Pat Blount approached P.J. and a neighbouring landowner to join him in a wind energy business venture. Pat agreed to take the financial risk and the landowner?s provided the site. They are now equal partners in the wind farm in the background. Developing this initiative with local support and involvement meant there have been no complaints, only good comments.
