Solar panel plans for TCD roof
The Government hopes to install solar panels on the roof of the Transport Control Department on North Street in Hamilton.
According to a planning application, the proposed system would include 376 panels, each of which could produce 400 Watts of electricity for a total of 150.4kW.
The proposal is one of several solar projects earmarked for Government buildings.
Last month, the Department of Planning granted approval for 588 solar panels to be installed on the roofs of the Government Administration Building and the General Post Office.
The panels are expected to have the capacity to generate a combined 211.68kW of electricity.
The Government has also announced plans to erect solar panels at both Global House in Hamilton, and the bus garage in Devonshire.
