THE Young Farmers’ Club of Ulster (YFCU) have unveiled leading Northern Ireland wind energy company Simple Power as the overall sponsor of its annual general meeting (AGM) and conference for the second year in a row.
The YFCU AGM and conference takes place on 20th April 2013 at La Mon Hotel, Belfast and will be attended by young farmers from across Northern Ireland. Weekend packages for the event will go on sale to members on Monday 3rd December 2012 from YFCU HQ.
Simple Power, which develops single wind turbines that feed directly into the electricity grid, will be attending the AGM and conference and its team will be providing information to young farmers interested in learning more about renewable energy.
William Wilson, YFCU president, said: “We are delighted to announce the continued support of Simple Power as our main sponsor of the AGM and conference. Paul Carson, CEO of Simple Power, is a great supporter of the work of YFCU and we look forward to holding our AGM and conference in association with Simple Power.”
Paul Carson, CEO of Simple Power, who was also a very active member of the YFCU in his youth, said: “We are delighted to once again support the Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster. We believe young farmers have a crucial role to play in the growth of wind energy; leveraging natural resources to boost farm incomes while protecting the environment and helping to generate clean, affordable energy for their and future generations. We are looking forward to speaking at the AGM and conference in April 2013.”
Simple Power’s first two wind turbines were officially launched by the Northern Ireland Environment Minister at farms in Randalstown, Co Antrim last month. Attendees at the AGM will have the opportunity to hear about these important partnerships and the process of building a single wind turbine from a farmer’s perspective.
