EDF Renewables Ireland is to start construction of three new solar farms in counties Wexford and Kilkenny this month. The three projects will be among the first utility-scale solar farms to be built in Ireland and, once complete, will have a combined capacity of 17MW. Coolroe Solar Farm (5MW) is located in Coolroe, Ballycullane, Co. Wexford, with Blusheens Solar Farm (8MW) in Killinick, Co. Wexford, while Curraghmartin Solar Farm (4MW) is located in Curraghmartin, Carrigeen, Co. Kilkenny. The projects are the first to begin construction following EDF Renewables’ acquisition of 100% of Wexford Solar Ltd last year, which included eight projects with over 100MW of capacity across the country.
