Planning permission granted for Offaly solar farm

Offaly County Council just last week granted planning permission for a solar farm near Tullamore.

Elgin Energy got the go-ahead – with 13 conditions attached – for the 8.4MVA (mega volt-amperes) project proposed for a single site, comprised of just under 18ha.

It consists of three fields in the townland of Ballyduff, adjacent to the Clara Road, Tullamore, a company spokesperson said.
