With the cost of energy rising, the financial attractiveness of installing solar PV panels is increasing. Ireland has one of the lowest deployments of solar in Europe and yet the total global investment in solar has exceeded wind every year for the last five years (Bloomberg, 2015). Solar PV is silent, has no moving parts, no emissions and requires no water use. In fact solar energy has the least environmental impact of all electricity generation. Planned sensitively, solar can deliver a net planning and biodiversity gain.
