Kerry County Council will write to the Government asking to increase funding to the Solar Support Energy Grant scheme.
It follows a motion raised at the recent full council meeting, by Fianna Fáil councillor for the Castleisland/Corca Dhuibhne MD, Michael O’Shea.
Cllr O’Shea says the grant that’s currently available isn’t enough for businesses to upgrade roof spaces for solar energy.
He says the current amount of €2400 isn’t comparable with everyday costs and it should be increased substantially.
The motion was seconded by Listowel Fianna Fáil councillor, Jimmy Moloney.
