Gweedore Photovoltaic Project

Date: 04 Feb 2022

Public consultations opens on 5 MW renewable energy project.

The development of renewable energy is central to the Údarás na Gaeltachta Strategy 2021-2025. The development of the Green Gaeltacht concept, which emphasises the viability and sustainability of the Gaeltacht community, is cited as a strategic goal in the Strategy.

Údarás na Gaeltachta, in conjunction with community development committees and organisations in Gaoth Dobhair, are exploring the potential for the development of a 5 MW photovoltaic park on an Údarás site on the outskirts of the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park.

It is intended that a public consultation process will be undertaken in respect of the project as part of the preparatory work for the preparation of an application for planning permission for the project. An information / public consultation event to this effect will be held in Amharclann Ghaoth Dobhair on Thursday, 10 February from 2.00p.m. to 8.00p.m.
