Plans to build a 345-acre solar farm, which could produce nearly 50MW of electricity on the Gwent levels, have been submitted to the Welsh Government. If permission is granted, the solar farm would be split over six parcels of land and could power the equivalent of 15,000 homes for a projected 30 years. The plot sits just south of the former Llanwern steelworks and is owned by nine landowners who would look to continue sheep grazing at the site. In order to spread capacity into the night, the site would also incorporate a battery storage area.
