NI ROC's Scheme set to close in April 2017....

 

NI ROC's grant scheme provided financial support for the installation of solar PV and on-shore wind turbines producing renewable electricity.

While initially successfully, the scheme was hindered by local government action in banning planning applications for on-shore wind turbines and the inability of the Norther Ireland electricical network to cope with the increase of electrical generation.

This has certinaly proved to be once again a missed oppertunity for Northern Ireland to become a low carbon country reducing our need for imported fossil fuels.
