Site Overview

Located in Co. Offaly, Clonin North Solar Farm is being developed within the townland of Clonin. The site is approximately 1 km from the village of Rhode which lies south of the site. The site itself is of moderate grade agricultural value, consisting of tilled land and grassland used for the grazing of livestock. The Solar Farm will be situated on shallow sloping agricultural land.

At the time of its submission, this development was the largest planning application for ground mounted solar PV nationwide. It subsequently became the largest consented development when planning permission was granted by Offaly County Council in 2017. The grant includes for 20 No. Conditions. The development includes for include one single storey electrical substation building and compound, electrical transformer/inverter station modules, solar PV panels ground mounted on steel support structures, access roads, fencing and associated electrical cabling, ducting and ancillary infrastructure.

This solar farm is being developed by Highfield Energy as part of our broader commitment to a sustainable future.
