Ford is celebrating 100 years in Britain by delving into its archive of photographs.
This week we're taking a look at how emissions from the company's Bridgend factory were cut down in 2002 with the help of some new solar panels.
Not just a few, either. Ford covered the roof of the Welsh factory with 25,000m2 of panels, which is enough to generate 110,000kWh or electricity each year (despite our weather).
