RWE is installing around 20,000 solar panels under a PV plant in south west Spain.
The company shared that the plant will have a planned capacity of 10 Mwac. It informed that the installation of solar panels will cover an area of about 21 hectares.
RWE, which has been expanding its solar business in Spain, had started off the construction for two solar farms in the Province of Guadalajara last year. It means three solar farms will be under construction.
The company is constructing the solar farms Casa Valdes and Puerta del Sol, each with a capacity of 44 MWac.
Robert Navarro, President and CEO, RWE Renewables Iberia, was quoted in a statement, “We are happy to contribute to the energy transition in Spain with our three new solar farms under construction. In total we will install more than 210,000 solar modules. “
The projects will add around 100 megawatt solar capacity to renewables footprint in achieving the climate goals.
According to the company, RWE will be using bifacial high-performance modules in all three solar projects.
These projects are likely to produce enough green electricity to supply the equivalent of 68,000 Spanish homes upon completion next year.
Meanwhile, RWE also operates onshore wind farms with a total capacity of more than 440 MW in Spain. The company shared that it is expanding its installed capacity to 20 gigawatts by 2030.
