Giant wind farm needed, says Energy Secretary Ed Davey

A giant onshore wind farm in south Wales will attract billions of pounds investment to the UK, according to UK Energy Secretary Ed Davey.

He was visiting the £400m Pen-y-Cymoedd project between Neath and Aberdare which will create the largest onshore wind farm in Wales or England.

Developers say the scheme will generate power for 140,000 homes from 76 turbines and create 300 jobs.

Construction work on the project is due to start next year.

Mr Davey said it was vital to secure energy supplies for the future.
