What are the benefits of this project?

  • Reduce the plant’s carbon footprint, which will equate to a 15 tonnes reduction in carbon emissions
  • Generate 32,000 kWh (kilowatt hours) per year of electricity, which will lead to a reduction in the demand for imported electricity at the site
  • Boost the resilience of the plant by ensuring a continuous supply of energy in the case of power outages
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase energy efficiency at the plant

What is involved as part of this project?

  1. Constructed 220 square metres of solar array in the southern part of the Nenagh plant, with this location selected to optimise the production of electricity
  2. Installation of 128 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels to generate clean, renewable electricity for the plant
  3. All construction works were undertaken within the boundary of the site, therefore minimising disruptions to residents and businesses of the surrounding area
