Lightsource Set To Invest £25 Million Into Northern Ireland Rooftop Solar

Leading European solar PV company Lightsource has announced it will invest £25 million into household solar PV in Northern Ireland.

The £25 million investment will fully fund solar PV installations for around 6,000 local homes in Northern Ireland, looking to reduce homeowner’s electricity bills by at least 20%. Lightsource will also provide long-term maintenance.

“We are entering into a new world of electricity supply where homeowners and businesses can actually have a choice in how and where their energy comes from,” said Nick Boyle, CEO at Lightsource. “This is great news for consumers, who can not only save money, but can also make decisions that are good for the environment. Solar power is at the forefront of this paradigm shift, and Lightsource is the clear leader in facilitating this choice.

“As Northern Ireland’s political parties negotiate the 2016–20 Programme for Government, it is the perfect opportunity to prioritise a long-term commitment towards a solid renewable energy framework and to safeguard future investment. In turn, this will allow many more homes, businesses and communities to access cheaper, greener electricity.”
