Solar panels are to be installed on four council buildings in Powys in a bid to save money and generate income.

Powys County Council has given the go-ahead to install panels on properties in Brecon, Llandrindod Wells, Newtown and Ystradgynlais.

The installation cost will be £147,000, but the total annual income will be £20,000, which means they will be paid for in just over seven years.

Solar panels have been in use on County Hall in Llandrindod Wells since 2003.
