Plans for two separate solar farms have been given the go-ahead by authorities recently in counties Offaly and Tipperary, according to local reports.
Engie Developments Ireland had submitted proposals for a 30ha farm of solar panels, with provisions also made for CCTV, security fencing and a control building in Clara, according to local radio station Midlands 103.
These were purportedly approved by Offaly County Council, though with numerous conditions attached. Also, appeals can still be lodged with An Bord Pleanala.
