Roscommon ESB/Bord na Móna solar farm plan to be unveiled later

New plans for four large solar farms in the Midlands will be unveiled later.

The Bord na Mona and ESB projects in Kildare, Offaly and Mount Dillion in Roscommon could generate enough electricity to power 150,000 homes if given the green light.

Minister Denis Naughten who will officially launch the plans this afternoon says it makes sense.
