On the 27th April 2017, ESB and Bord na Móna announced a co-development agreement to develop solar power in four locations in Roscommon, Offaly and Kildare, which will provide renewable energy to power the equivalent of 150,000 homes.
In July 2017, as part of the site selection process ESB and Bord na Móna carried out site investigation works on Timahoe North bog located in North Kildare to determine the suitability of ground conditions for the construction of a solar farm. Following on from these works, Timahoe North bog was selected for the proposed development of a solar farm in the area.
In order for members of the public to be informed about the proposed development, ESB and Bord na Móna recently held public consultations in Carbury and Johnstownbridge.
