Question Number(s): 304 Question Reference(s): 11467/24
Department: Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Asked by: David Stanton T.D.


To ask the Minister for Agriculture; Food and the Marine further to Parliamentary Question No. 391 of 14 November 2023, to outline the number of TAMS 2 solar PV installations that were signed off by installers not listed on his Department’s installers list; and if he will make a statement on the matter.


A registered list of competent installers to carry out solar PV installations is maintained by my Department, as required under the terms and conditions of the Targeted Agriculture Modernisation Scheme. The latest version of this list is available on my Department’s website. 

The Declaration of Works Form, as outlined in Specification 198, which covers the minimum specifications for the installation of Solar PV Systems, requires the inclusion of the Solar PV Registered Company.

The registered list is comprised of businesses, companies and sole traders. I understand that, in some cases, the registered installer company may sub-contract the installation to another solar PV installer business. However, the receipt for the works must be supplied by the business listed on the Department’s Solar PV Registered Installer list, and it is this company that has overall responsibility for the solar PV installation.
