Swedish solar developer Alight AB has unveiled an expansion into Finland with a solar project of plus-100 MW, located in the municipality of Eurajoki in the southwestern part of the country.
The company aims to start construction of the solar park in the final quarter of 2024 and to commission the facility in the first quarter of 2026. In an announcement on Friday, the developer said the project will help Finland achieve its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2035.
Alight develops, owns and operates onsite and offsite solar projects that sell electricity to businesses under fixed-price power purchase agreements (PPAs). The company, which operates without government subsidies, secured a EUR-150-million (USD 160m) investment last year and is targeting at least 5 GW of installed capacity by 2030.
