Planning Permission in Ireland, Is It Required For Solar Panel Arrays?

Is planning permission needed and if so how long does it typically take

Yes, it is.  The good news is that the Irish government are intending to make the planning application process quicker and easier for renewable energy projects. 

But, for now it is still the slow and onerous process it has always been. The typical project submission can run from 3-6 months for standard installations. For mire complex and larger scale projects or green field sites this can run into a longer turn around time for permission.
