Danish group Obton and Irish company Shannon Energy plan to spend €300 million building plants that will generate electricity from solar power in the Republic.

Obton and Shannon Energy said on Wednesday that they had formed a joint venture to develop solar farms, which use panels of specially manufactured cells to convert the sun’s heat to electricity, in the Republic.

The pair intend spending €300 million over three years on building solar farms that will generate up to 500 megawatts (MW) of electricity, creating about 1,000 jobs in the process.
