FOLLOWING the green light for a solar farm in Enniskeane, a planning application for another such development has been lodged for nearby Derrigra West, Ballineen. 

Amarenco Solar Ballineen lodged a planning application for a solar farm comprising approximately 22,200 photovoltaic panels on ground mounted frames within on 10.18 hectares. 

A decision is due at the end of this month. Just before Christmas, the County Council granted planning permission with conditions to Power Capital Renewable Energy Ltd for a solar farm at Teddies Upper, Enniskeane. 

Locals voiced their opposition and following a series of public meetings they set up the Enniskeane Solar Farm Action Group.
