TAMS II - Targeted Agricultural Modernisation scheme are offering up to 60% grant for farmers
A series of new grants available for Irish farms under the Targeted Agricultural Modernisation Scheme (TAMS) on-farm investment scheme has been announced by Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Michael Creed.
The new measure will make €10 million worth of grants available for energy efficiencies and renewable energy technologies, following a comprehensive review of the TAMS scheme designed to increase its focus on sustainability. These grants are available for Solar PV systems
Solar energy is clean and affordable on site and is ideal for farming as it can be installed on current buildings. You can generate your own electricity in a sustainable way by investing in solar PV.
Solar Power Example
A solar PV system size for a dairy farm of approximately 5.5kWp combined with a 4.5kWh of battery storage capacity. Grant aid in this initial pilot phase will be to fund a 6kWp solar system. Costs are based on the cost of installation of a 6kWp solar system; this includes a battery which is necessary to capture the energy output thereby making it economically viable. At this maximum size the grant provided at the 40% rate would be €6,2000 and at 60% would be €9,300.
