Site Overview

Located in Co. Waterford, Drumroe East Solar Farm is being developed within the townland of Drumroe. The site is approximately 10 km from Dungarvan which lies east of the site. The site itself is a working farm of moderate grade agricultural value, with tillage land and improved grassland for the grazing of stock. There are existing farm tracks on the site to be used for access to the development. The Solar Farm will be situated on flat or shallow sloping agricultural land currently used for grazing of stock at an approximate elevation of 18-30m AOD.

At the time of its submission and local grant, this development was the largest planning application for ground mounted solar PV nationwide. Planning permission for this site was granted by An Bord Pleanala in 2016 and includes for 17 No. Conditions. The grant 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.

The site is proximate to existing electrical infrastructure and the current grid connection point is projected as the Kilcloher 38kV substation local to the site.

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