Bouygues Energies Services has commenced construction work on two subsidy-free solar farms, a local media reported. The two solar farms will have a total capacity of 115 MWp in Llanwern, Wales and Strensham for NextEnergy Capital.
The Llanwern solar farm will comprise more than 187,500 solar modules spread across 300 acres. That said, Strensham will have 100,000 modules covering 125 acres. In total, the solar farms generate sufficient energy annually to meet electricity needs of 22,000 people in the UK, a local media reported.

It is reported that more than half of electricity generated in the UK was sourced from renewables in the first three months of the year. In 2016, Bouygues delivered the largest solar farm in Southeast Asia with a total output of 132 MWc, media reports said.
