The growing number of applications for planning permission for solar farms in Ireland shows how the country is ‘ideal’ for PV solar panels, according to the Irish Solar Energy Association (ISEA).
Up to the end of August, 225 applications have been made nationwide. These include applications from 20 different counties, as far north as Cavan.
This shows how all of Ireland is suitable for PV Solar Panel technology. Indeed, while none of these solar farms have yet been built in the Republic of Ireland, one commercial solar farm is already operating successfully even further north – beside Belfast Airport.
Planning permission has already been granted for 95 of the 225 applications. In most other cases, either further information has been requested by the relevant planning board, or else a decision is still pending. Less than a dozen applications have so far been withdrawn or refused.
It means that once government policy on commercial solar farms is finalised, they are likely to become a common sight across Ireland. They will be instrumental in Ireland’s attempts to meet renewable energy targets by the year 2020.
It means that in the next decade, a significant portion of your power from the national grid is likely to come from solar energy. It also means that it’s becoming more feasible all the time to generate such power yourself too.
