Aug. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Eco Energy World Ltd., a U.K. developer of clean-power projects, said it connected five solar- energy farms to the grid.

The projects in the U.K. have a combined capacity of 70 megawatts, London-based Eco Energy said today in an e-mailed statement. They range in size from 9 megawatts to 15 megawatts and will generate enough power for about 22,000 homes a year, it said.

Eco Energy plans to install 200 megawatts of solar power in the country this year, it said.
