Solarpack Corporación Tecnológica has connected to the grid a new photovoltaic solar plant with a power of 49.84 MW located in Cáceres, Extremadura.
The new photovoltaic plant, Pizarroso, was built on a surface of 91 hectares, will generate around 95 GWh per year and will avoid the emission of more than 2,000,000 tons of CO2 throughout the useful life of the project, providing electrical energy equivalent to annual consumption of 27,000 homes.
This project, which includes a total of 76,160 photovoltaic modules, has started to pour clean energy into the electrical grid and has generated 195 work loads during the construction phase, of which 50% were covered by local workers.
Leo Moreno, Solarpack's delegated advisor, said: “We are very proud of our team that has started this project. It assumes another success in our commitment to sustainability and to the strength of our presence in Extremadura, which is now one of the main scenarios of the Solarpack campaign for sustainable growth. We have the purpose of accelerating the transition with clean and affordable energy for everyone and projects like this contribute to achieving this objective.”
This plant is the sixth of Solarpack in Extremadura, where the company has a total installed power of 171 MW and it was in Spain, where it reaches a total installed power of 345 MW.
