Proposed Glenamoy solar farm development
Energia Renewables are developing plans for a solar PV installation in the townland of Ballymad, near Julianstown in County Meath. The proposed solar installation will connect into the local electricity network and will have an export capacity of up to 30MW MEC.
Original plans for a larger project have been scaled back. The new project boundary is shown in pink on the map.
The previously consented 20MW Glenamoy House solar project, which received planning permission in 2018, is shown in green.

Key site statistics
The site has been carefully selected and is well screened with mature hedgerows comprising trees and shrubs.
We have undertaken a wide range of environmental assessments, including landscape and visual, heritage and archaeology, ecology, hydrology, glint and glare - and more.
The project will help Ireland to reach its 80% renewable electricity target by 2030, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and increasing security of energy supply.
We have created an information brochure, which you can view or download here.
Community benefit funds
We want local people to see and feel the benefit of renewable energy through our community benefit funds, which support community groups, voluntary organisations, schools and environmental projects situated near our renewable energy developments.
Our solar community benefit funds will be designed to meet the needs of the local area and will be administered by an independent charitable foundation on behalf of Energia. They will operate in accordance with industry best practice and grants will be made available one year after the start of commercial operation.
If you have any questions about any of our operational wind farms, development sites, battery storage facilities or renewable energy projects, please contact our Community Liaison Officer by email at email@example.com, or phone +44 78804 32201.
