Solas Éireann, the Irish solar energy developer, today announced it has entered into a joint venture with market leading renewable energy specialist, Golden Square Energy (‘GSE’). Solas Éireann shall commit over €100 million to the development and construction of solar farms across Ireland, and has a current pipeline in excess of 250 MW. The venture marks a significant milestone for Solas Éireann as the company establishes itself as one of the largest developers of solar farms in Ireland.

Together the venture partners bring a wealth of experience to the business, having successfully developed and constructed over 400MW of solar farms across Europe. Through the partnership, Solas Éireann’s resource and capacity will be boosted by GSE’s team of over 35 sector specialists, who have already deployed over £150 million in similar projects across the UK.

Solas Éireann is extremely proud of its Irish heritage and we are excited to be partnering with GSE in our quest to bring solar energy to our country. The partnership will drive forward the development of the farms, as well as the creation of jobs in local communities.
