Green Energy Partners, based in Carrick On Shannon says the development is a necessary one.

A Leitrim company which specialises in renewable energy is welcoming government plans to scrap the requirement for planning to install solar panels on homes and businesses

It's being reported today that the coalition will remove the requirement to apply to County Councils for permission to install panels in order to encourage more people to invest in solar energy.

Currently, panels of all sizes for commercial and domestic businesses require permission from local authorities. It's also expected that restrictions will be imposed in certain areas of the country, such as near airports or military installations.

"We feel it's something that needed to happen considering the way energy prices have gone. We're looking at home owners and business owners up and down the country under serious pressure at the moment so this is a massively welcome development".
