Solar firm Elgin Energy has been granted planning permission to add to it’s extensive UK portfolio.
The firm announced last week it was granted planning permission for Glenamaddy, a 4MW solar farm in County Galway, Ireland.
The Glenamaddy solar farm will generate enough energy to power 1,300 homes and 1,800 electric vehicles.
Elgin Energy is behind the two biggest solar projects to be built in Scotland.
The company were given a huge shot in the arm with the commission of the 20 megawatt (MW) Speyslaw solar farm in August last year, and quickly followed that up with a proposal for the massive 50MW Milltown Airfield development.
Elgin also operates the 13MW Errol Estate solar farm in Perthshire, which went live last year.
