A feasibility study is to be carried out into the development of a community solar panel park in Mohill.

The Department of Rural and Community Development has granted €18,000 for the initiative which will examine potential sites, grid capacity, ownership models and planning considerations.

The project is likely to start in February 2021 and will include consultation with Mohill's Sustainable Energy Community, the Town Team and other community stakeholders.
