Solar Grants for Agriculture

The new Tams 3 has a 60% grant for solar panels for farmers on their farm. Grant aid will only be paid on approved, completed, and eligible expenditure and will be paid at the rate of 60% up to the maximum investment ceiling of €90,000 per farm.

The minimum amount of investment which is eligible for approval under this Scheme is €2,000 per farm. The Scheme is open to farmers who have a minimum of 5 hectares of owned, leased or rented lands which has been declared under the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and the Basic Income Support for Sustainability (BISS). In the case of intensive enterprises, generate a minimum of 20 production units from farming or have a Department identifier. 

The maximum size of PV panels eligible for grant aid is 62kW.

SolarCo can guide you step by step through the process.

Solar Grants for Commercial

In July of 2023 a new Non-Domestic Business Grant was opened for all businesses to apply for up to a maximum of €162,600. This will typically support 20-30% of the investment cost, reducing payback to as little as 5 years!

  SolarCo works closely with the Tipperary Energy Agency and The 3 Counties Energy Agency to help our commercial clients obtain Government support via the Better Energy Communities scheme.

Better Energy Communities is the SEAI national retrofit initiative with support of up to €28 million each year, to achieve better energy efficiency in Irish communities. The grant aims to deliver energy savings to homeowners, communities, and private sector organizations.

All projects should be community oriented with a cross-sectoral approach, and you must show that you can sustainably finance the proposed project.
