Elgin Energy Plans Solar Farm

Elgin Energy is making plans for a 100-acre solar photvoltaic (PV) farm in Kilkenny. This is the latest in a list of proposals by solar farm developers which follows the fall in the cost of solar PV technology.

They have applied to build this on a 39.6 hectare site that is close to the village of Ballyragget. Elgin explains that the project in Ballyragget would be able to power 6500 homes in the area and could eliminate 300,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions in the course of its lifespan. The decision about the project should be given on December 5.
