Plans for Welsh low carbon town

Plans for Welsh low carbon town
A scheme to turn Aberdare into the first low carbon town in Wales is underway.

Energy efficient measures are being taken inside homes, while low carbon buildings are also being planned.

Energy panels, special low carbon lighting, smart meters and new boilers are some of the features set to be installed in the town in Cynon Valley.

Solar thermal hot water heating systems, new renewable energy schemes and solar photovoltaic panels are also being lined up.

Jane Davidson, the environment minister, launched the scheme with deputy minister for regeneration Leighton Andrews.

She said: "By becoming Wales' first low carbon town Aberdare will now be at the forefront of bringing about a new way of living within our resources."

Between £70 million and £90 million is being invested in the project, which will turn Abernare into one of the UK's biggest green zones.

The initiative is part of the larger Heads of the Valleys regeneration scheme in Wales.
