October 23 (Solar) – Enel Green Power Espana (EGPE) has begun construction of three solar power plants in Spain with a combined capacity of 126.6 MW.
EGPE is building the Baylio, Dehesa de los Guadalupes and Furatena photovoltaic (PV) facilities in the municipality of Logrosan, near Caceres in the Extremadura region. Each of them has a capacity of 42.2 MW and the company calculates that it would need to spend a total of EUR 100 million (USD 115m) to realise the projects.
The trio, which includes a total of 372,000 PV modules, should be completed by the end of next year, Enel said. It is part of the 339 MW of solar capacity that was awarded to EGPE in the July 2017 renewable tender.
EGPE is owned by Spanish utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE), which is part of the Enel group of companies. Earlier this month, Enel said that EGPE had started building three wind farms totalling 128 MW in Teruel province in the northeastern Spanish region of Aragon.
