Solar energy is perfect for Dublin and it quickly pays for itself- Irish Independent 15/02/2015
Investing in solar energy production can pay for itself in just seven to 13 years, a new report published by Dublin City Council has revealed
The IBM Smarter Cities Challenge report concludes that Dublin is a good location to produce solar energy because of the amount of daylight the city enjoys. But the report says that solar power can deliver on its potential only if it benefits from the same incentives that have helped other renewable energy sources in Ireland.
The report says that as solar power can be produced and used in the same location it increases our energy security. “Solar can play an important role in helping Ireland meet an EU requirement to provide 16pc of energy from renewable sources by 2020,” it says.
To mark the publication of the first comprehensive study of solar energy production and its use in the capital, the city council will install solar panels on the Civic Offices on Wood Quay and four public library buildings in 2015.
