Planning permission for over 220 solar farms has been made since June 2015, as more and more companies look at establishing solar farms in Ireland.

Typically solar farms tend to be for a minimum of 25 acres although this size is growing to the hundreds and most of the planning applications have been in Cork, Wexford and Meath.

In most instances, solar farms are where land is leased by a Renewable Energy Developer from a land owner and the developer will install rows of ground-mounted solar panels in the field.
