The German RWE continues to establish itself in the Spanish renewable market with the commissioning of the Las Vaguadas solar park, a 10 MW photovoltaic installation equipped with 20,000 solar panels distributed over 15 hectares in the province of Badajoz. This is the company's fourth solar project in Spain, after the deployment of the Casa Valdés and Puerta del Sol projects -both in Guadalajara-, of 44 MW each, and the Gazules project, of 92 MW - the latter in phase construction in Cádiz-.
For the four solar projects, RWE uses high-performance bifacial modules, whose advantages include their bifacial cells, capable of absorbing solar radiation from both the front and the rear. Additionally, the panels have been installed in a double-sided glass module, allowing for an increase in renewable energy production.
Katja Wünschel, CEO of RWE Renewables in Europe and Australia: “Solar energy in Spain is a success story. We have deployed the solar parks of Casa Valdés, Puerta del Sol and Las Vaguadas, and we have already begun to build our Gazules solar project; Together, the four solar parks add up to around 500,000 bifacial solar modules. We will soon have expanded our solar capacity in the Spanish market to around 250 megawatts, enough to supply thousands of Spanish homes with solar energy. This is a great achievement."
