A total of 400 council homes in Flintshire are to be fitted with solar panels by December.

Householders will save an estimated £3.3m in energy bills combined over the 20-year life of the panels, according to the council.

So far, 280 properties have been fitted with the panels.

The council said it will have repaid the set-up costs in 10 years and profit from any surplus electricity would be reinvested in its housing stock.
