Enel Green Power starts construction of three solar photovoltaic plants in Spain

26 May 2021

Enel Green Power España (EGPE) has started construction of the Veracruz, Puerta Palmas and El Doblón solar photovoltaic plants between Mérida and Almendralejo. The project, which is expected to complete this year, will entail an investment of around €96m.

Enel Green Power will employ around 900 people from the local area for the construction of these plants, in keeping with the Shared Value Creation plan that the company’s renewable energy subsidiary, Enel Green Power Spain, applies in the construction of all its plants.

The Veracruz, Puerta Palmas and El Doblón plants will each have installed capacity of around 50MW thanks to bifacial photovoltaic panels, which are more efficient as they generate power by exposing both sides of the cells to sunlight. These panels, which will be installed using state-of-the-art technology, will come into operation in December 2021.

Enel Green Power currently manages a renewable capacity of more than 7,794MW in Spain: 4,745MW of hydraulic power, 2,422MW of wind power, 624MW of solar power, and 3MW from other renewable sources.
