Windfarm owners were paid €10m not to produce energy

Irish wind-farm operators receive payouts from other electricity providers in respect of "constraints" or "curtailments" where a transmission or distribution line is down for maintenance or where there is a local fault, or when there is high wind at a time of low-energy demand (for example, in the middle of the night) and turbines are shut down due to over-capacity.
