For the love of solar - Minister O'Brien must solve solar panel mess

Step One Select your constituency

Schools need planning permission to install even one solar panel on their roof. This makes installing solar panels unfeasible for many schools, due to the added cost and time associated with applying for planning permission. Without explanation the Department of Housing has repeatedly kicked the issue to touch over the past 3 years, copying and pasting the same messages but introducing a new delayed timeline roughly once every 3 months.

A few weeks ago the Taoiseach made a positive statement in the Dáil about the need to resolve this issue….but the very next day, in the Seanad, we heard of yet another delay!

Enough is enough - it’s time for the Minister for Housing to resolve this issue once and for all so that schools can run on sun. Please use our e-action to email your Fianna Fáil TDs, asking them to ask their colleague, Minister Darragh O’Brien, to act on this issue immediately and to also raise it at the next Fianna Fáil parliamentary party meeting.

Note: This e-action is only suitable for people who have a Fianna Fáil TD in their constituency. If you don’t have a Fianna Fáil TD you could contact the Minister for Housing directly - contact details are available here.
