SunSteel, a steel manufacturer in the North East of England, has announced plans to use its solar power to generate electricity for its own operations.
The solar panels will be installed at two plants in the village of Duxford in the Vale of Glamorgan, and the solar power will be fed into the power grid.
The plants are set to be fully operational by 2023.
The move comes as solar installations in Britain and other countries are increasing.
Earlier this year, the UK launched a pilot programme to install solar power at the country’s power stations.
In the United States, the US Department of Energy (DOE) said it will install more than 1,000 solar panels across the country by 2026, adding that solar energy could save the US $4.4bn in energy costs in 2025.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) said the move was an example of the UK’s “commitment to solar energy and the world.”
It added that the solar panel installations would “reduce CO2 emissions, boost UK energy security and increase the UK economy”.
SEIA’s chief executive, David Stowe, said solar power was an energy solution that could be harnessed for “solar and wind power projects that have the potential to create new jobs, reduce energy demand and support green infrastructure development”.
“By the end of 2020, over 1,200 solar and wind projects in the United Kingdom will have been completed, providing over 400,000 new jobs and generating £3.7bn for the UK.” “
The government is currently developing the UK Renewable Energy Market. “

In May, it unveiled a “guidance document” to set out a range of policy initiatives aimed at “building the UK as a world-leading place to build, invest and scale solar and other renewables”.
The document also included a list of companies that have signed on to the “Make the UK a Renewable Capital” initiative.
In June, the Government launched a “National Solar Action Plan”.
The plan, which will be released in September, outlines the government plans to make “the UK a world leader in clean energy”.
In August, the government announced it was looking at new “policies and tools” to help companies create “clean energy jobs”.
It said it was “looking at ways to accelerate the deployment of new, clean energy generation, and to provide the most secure and affordable way to supply and deploy this energy”.
Solar energy is currently used for less than 0.2% of UK electricity production.
In 2016, the number of solar panels installed in the country was estimated to be about 2,000.
