Almost! We are preparing to develop four solar farms in Galway, Mayo and Tipperary. Ownership of these solar farms will be open to the communities and citizens of Ireland, with priority to those living nearby, to allow all to share in the returns and benefits of renewable energy. Each solar farm will be developed as individual legal entities, and all will be built on co-operative principles based on voluntary and open participation, will be autonomous and will be effectively controlled by shareholders or members that are located nearby.
We have taken part in the first auction of the Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS) September 2020 and have been successful and again in 2022. This scheme will provide support for the sale of solar electricity to the Irish market for the first time.
We are looking for communities and people who share in our vision of community and citizen owned renewable energy in Ireland, and want to own a share in a solar farm in Ireland.
