The government has lifted many of the restrictions pertaining to the installation of Solar Panels for domestic and other buildings, however, there are still some exceptions for property near emergency services and airports.
According to the recent article in the Irish Independent “Solar panel restrictions lifted as property owners now free to install as many as they like“, these new rules by planning minister Peter Burke TD and are expected to be signed off next week.
It will mean that current restrictions on the number of panels changes so the requirement for planning permission for more than 12 sq. meters domestically and 50 sq. meters for businesses has been lifted.
This change, allied with enhancements in energy storage, the ability to sell excess back to the grid and the potential for a long period of high energy bills makes a compelling case for the installation of Solar Panels.
