Duagh woman claims residents have concerns over solar farm plans

terra solar logoA North Kerry woman claims residents in Duagh have concerns over plans to build a solar farm in the area. Michelle O’Connor from Trieneragh, Duagh, says there are a number of unknowns which are worrying locals. She says there are alternatives to using rural sites, such as constructing the solar farms in disused industrial estates. Terra Solar, the company behind the venture, plan on building six solar energy farms in Kerry at a cost of 30-million-euro. Ms O’Connor says while there is no evidence of the ill effects of solar farms, they are yet to be fully understood.
