A £5.7m solar farm is set to provide a Welsh hospital with almost a quarter of its power. The 4-megawatt development will be built on land at Brynwhillach Farm and linked to Morriston Hospital, Swansea, by a 1.86 mile (3km) cable. Health board bosses hope the facility – which is set to be operational by the summer – will cut electricity bills by £500,000 a year. In total, 10,000 panels will provide the power from the 14-hectare site. The Swansea Bay health board was awarded £13.5m by the Welsh Government for the solar farm and other energy-saving and carbon-reducing measures.
