Alongside conventional lower carbon generation, Kilroot Energy Park also seeks to deliver low-cost electricity generation using our greatest natural resources.
A proposed solar farm fits with this principle by converting sunlight to electricity for export to the grid or for use on site.
If linked with the existing energy storage, this could also provide grid balancing services by storing electricity harnessed from solar power for use at a later time.
The potential of siting a solar farm between conventional generation on site and existing residential areas is being explored as this will create a sensitive transition in power generation development thereby respecting existing neighbours.Learn More
