Galway Bay fm newsroom – Plans to extend a proposed major solar farm in Claregalway have been rejected by county planners.

The project would have seen a vast array of solar panels installed at a 25 hectare site at Ballymoneen.

Last year, permission was granted for a major solar farm at a site at Ballymoneen and Grange East that would span 141 hectares.

The as-of-yet unbuilt solar farm, led by Renewable Energy System Ltd, would be operational for 35 years.

The developer has since applied for a 25 hectare extension, involving five fields within three land parcels.
