Renewable energy Grants for Farms
Solar PV Installation on Farms
Targeted Agriculture Modernisation Schemes (TAMS) provide grants to farmers to build and/or improve a specified range of farm buildings and equipment on their holding. The latest version of the TAMS project, TAMS 3, has been released in February 2023 and includes the installation of solar panels and batteries. Minister for Agriculture Charlie McConalogue has confirmed. The grant will apply for installations costing up to €90,000 and at a rate of 40% of the cost incurred.
Offering grant aid for farms across Ireland towards the purchase and installation of Solar Pv Panels, there are currently 7 different schemes available under TAMS:
- Young Farmers’ Capital Investment Scheme
- Dairy Equipment Scheme
- Low Emission Slurry Spreading Scheme
- Animal Welfare, Safety and Nutrient Storage Scheme
- Pig & Poultry Investment Scheme
- Organic Capital Investment Scheme
- Tillage Capital Investment Scheme
All of the electricity generated from the installation of Solar PV on farms must be used for agricultural purposes. Gov.ie gives further information of the eligible items and their associated costs.
