9 January 2013 Last updated at 20:23 GMT

Plans for a solar panel park the size of 28 football pitches have been approved by Anglesey council.

It will be the biggest of its kind in Wales with more than 60,000 solar panels.

The site at the Bodorgan Estate, near Aberffraw, has a target of producing enough energy to power 4,500 homes.

It follows other successful applications in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.

Environment correspondent Iolo ap Dafydd reports on what is making large scale solar power popular.
