Solarcentury has announced its first UK solar farm development in four years, with 62MW planned for a Welsh site. The company has identified a plot of land on which to build the Elwy Solar Energy Farm, north east of St. Asaph, Wales. It would generate 60GWh of electricity per year from ground mounted panels. Batteries are also planned for the site, allowing the solar power to be used both day and night. The company says that the return to the UK market underlines the evolution of the solar industry in recent years.
