Giant solar energy farm planned for Tuam’s outskirts

A GIANT solar energy farm is planned for the outskirts of Tuam.

The development would generate enough electricity to power 5,700 homes and cover an area of 150 acres.

The solar farm is one of the biggest planned for the West of Ireland and is earmarked for several sites, just south of the town centre, off the old Athenry Road, R347. It will take in several separate parcels of lands that are owned by 18 individual landowners in Cloontoa, Rinkippen, Cloonascragh, Barnacurragh and Ballykeaghra townlands.
