Renewables company Audax Renovables SA (BME:ADX) has commissioned two solar farms with a combined capacity of 10 MWp in native Spain.
The plants, named Carolinas I and II and located in Guadalajara province, central Spain, have started feeding power into the grid, Audax announced on Wednesday.
Another Audax PV project in Guadalajara, the Canamares solar farm, started operations several weeks ago after being stuck in the permitting process due to circumstances brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, as the company announced in early March.
Canamares and both Carolinas solar farms will operate under power purchase agreements (PPAs) with their parent organisation Audax Renovables, which aims to serve its customers with renewable power generated by own portfolio of plants, the Spanish group said.
At present, Audax is building some 50 MWp solar farms across Spain, saying the construction activity at the sites is proceeding as normal. The portfolio includes La Zarzuela I, II, III and IV projects with 20 MWp in total, Las Alberizas I, II, III and IV totalling 20 MWp, the 4.48-MWp Calanas and the 5-MWp Los Arenales.
The Audax group said it expects to complete these projects and have them in operation during the current financial year.
