Proposal for 42-acre solar farm

Have your say

Plans for a new solar farm, near Ballysculty Road, Antrim, are set to be unveiled by Lightsource Renewable Energy.

The solar energy generator is inviting local residents to a special community consultation event to help refine plans for the development - which will provide clean, safe energy for around 1,600 homes.

As well as providing clean energy, the farm could become a haven for wildlife as the firm’s planners work closely with ecologists to ensure the most appropriate biodiversity enhancements are incorporated into the site.

The proposals for the 42-acre solar farm will be showcased on Monday, June 16, at Muckamore Community Centre, Ballycraigy Road, Antrim, from 5.30pm until 8pm, and Lightsource is keen to speak with local residents to get their input into the scheme.
