Carlow as a county has a proud history of supporting renewable energy projects. In 2021 according to the local website The Carlow Live planning permission was granted for over 500 yards of solar panels to be erected on roof of Penneys in Carlow.
Maybe Penneys got their lead from Carlow Co. Council. In 2016, Carlow County Council was behind target to meet energy efficiency commitments detailed for all public sector bodies in the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan. A solar PV array was subsequently designed for the County Hall building to maximise roof space and solar emissions. 15.75kW of PV panels were installed in September 2016, Early adapters to put it mildly.
The local council has recently granted planning permission for a 65 hectare (160 acre) solar farm in Grangeford Old and Friarstown . The development site is adjoined to the Ardnehue river which drains into the Burren river.
SolarShare Limited look forward to supporting the people of Carlow in the journey to take full advantages of renewable energy and solar power in particular.
