Wales' largest community energy project is due to go live for the first time in Swansea.

After 18 years of planning the Awel Aman Tawe wind farm is to be connected to the National Grid on Friday.

A pair of 100m (328ft) turbines will produce enough electricity to power 2,500 homes.

The project has been funded by a community share offer, which has so far raised £1.6m.

One of the oldest local investors is 84-year-old Eric Bowen from Cilmaengwyn.

"I've never invested in anything in my life," he said.
