Solar Farm, Usk

This special project involved the installation of 22,000 solar panels in a 32-acre flat field previously used to grow cereals. The solar farm is expected to generate enough electricity to power more than 1,100 homes, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and run for 25 years. The solar farm will save at least 100,000 tonnes of Co2 emissions over this period.
