The TOBIN Ecology team examined the potential ecological impacts (such as habitat loss, habitat damage/disturbance, disturbance to species and potential pollution of surface water) of the proposed Mothel Solar Farm development with regard to flora and fauna both within and surrounding the application site. Existing site conditions were presented, potential impacts were assessed, mitigation measures were proposed, and enhancement measures were recommended.

TOBIN, selected by BNRG Mothel Ltd, achieved planning approval from Waterford City and County Council in 2019 for Mothel Solar Farm (Phase 1). This project comprised a 30 MW Solar Farm, overhead line, and 110 kV Substation in Co. Waterford. Planning permission was secured for Phase 2 of this project in April 2024. This 60MW project spans 141 hectares with 120,000 panels, supplying electricity equivalent to 13,500 Irish households annually. It will connect to the Mothel Solar Farm Phase 1 – 110kV substation.
