IFA Solar

New Solar Energy Partnership

IFA and Bord Gáis Energy, building on their long-standing relationship, have launched a new partnership which will offer roof top solar solutions to Irish farmers.

Through listening to farmer’s needs, we now see solar as one of the most reliable ways to help cut energy costs and reduce carbon emissions.

The launch follows a pilot project undertaken by IFA and Bord Gáis Energy to establish the commercial feasibility of the installation of roof top solar technology on Irish farms. The pilot worked closely with farmers from different sectors, sizes and geographies and clearly and objectively established the benefits of solar for all farmers involved. The results of the pilot demonstrate the support that IFA and Bord Gáis Energy can provide to help maximise the benefits of rooftop solar for farmers. It also helped identify the barriers to entry and, by working together, how to overcome them.

As the largest energy services business in Ireland, Bord Gáis Energy has the technical and engineering capacity to deliver high class solar solutions for farmers. Together, we also have the ability to provide a reliable customer experience with ongoing support. Each farm is unique and we will provide a comprehensive renewables offering for farmers including a detailed assessment of the viability, design and installation of a rooftop solar. We will also provide guidance on available supports, expected system performance, payback periods and ongoing support in the form of data analysis to help farmers on this journey.

Bord Gáis Energy and IFA will begin installation in the early spring but encourage interested parties to register interest and request further details.
