Obton and Shannon Energy were awarded 11 Solar Park Projects for the first RESS (Renewable Energy Support Scheme) Auction held in July 2020. Construction is planned to begin in Q1 2021.
The projects are situated in eight counties throughout Ireland, with sites located in Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Longford, Galway, Offaly, Meath and Tipperary.
The combined 118 MW of power generated will be enough to fulfil the yearly energy requirements of up to 20,000 households.
Over the next five years we will develop up to 500 MW of solar PV projects in Ireland. This represents an investment in the Irish economy of over €300m at today’s energy prices and will create over 1,000 jobs particularly during its construction phase.
