A solar energy park - one of the biggest of its kind - has been approved by Anglesey Council's Planning Committee today. 64,000 panels generating 15 megawatts of power could now be put-up on a 75-acre site on the island's Bodorgan Estate.
Developers say the project could generate enough electricity to power 4,500 homes annually and connect to the National Grid via existing overhead lines.Anglesey's planning officer had recommended allowing the applicant, Bodorgan Environmental Management Ltd, to install the panels.
The site is currently used for silage and grazing sheep.
