A proposal for Northern Ireland’s biggest solar farm has secured planning permission.

The Hadstone Energy scheme comprises a 46 mega watt solar farm in County Antrim.

The 79-hectare project will supply energy to 9,500 homes once completed.

Sarah Ewing, real estate associate at law firm TLT, which advised Headstone on the planning application, said the move was a significant development for the sector in Northern Ireland, “showing that renewable energy is still seen as a viable commercial option despite shifting policy and regulations changes”.
