Go Ahead for largest Solar PV Array in the Republic

On 15th June 2016 Kildare County Council granted planning permission for a 10MW Solar PV array at Timahoe West, Coolcarrigan, County Kildare. The development comprises the provision of 66,000 sq. m of Solar PV panels within an overall site area of approx. 17.8 Ha (44 acres). The proposal also includes the provision of associated control cabins, inverter units, security fencing, underground cabling, site entrance, CCTV stands and landscaping.

This planning permission represents a grant for the largest ground based Solar PV array in the Republic of Ireland, in terms of MW output. This grant of permission demonstrates that large scale solar arrays can be accommodated on suitable sites. Kildare County Council took account of archaeology, built heritage and ecology among other things, in making their decision.

McCarthy Keville O’Sullivan Limited is delighted to have led this project through the design and planning process to a final decision to grant by Kildare County Council.
