50 New Jobs To Be Created In County Wicklow By Irish Solar Energy Services Company

Crowley Carbon is to invest €10 million in three projects with the aim of increasing the amount of solar energy produced here by 50%.

The move will bring to 250, the number of people employed by the Enniskerry based firm, both in Ireland and internationally in over 18 countries.

The company's aim is to install over 1,000 MW of solar energy here between now and 2024 in order to reduce Ireland's carbon emissions by 250,000 tonnes every year.

Crowley Carbon is one of a growing number of firms entering the solar energy generation space here, as the push continues to decarbonise the sector.
