The Canary Islands government is inviting public feedback on requests to install three solar photovoltaic (PV) farms totalling 19.71 MW in Puerto del Rosario on the island of Fuerteventura.
According to the Canary Islands official gazette on Monday, the largest project is the 10.45-MW Rosa de la Arena solar farm promoted by the Canary Islands renewables developer Disa Renovables SL. The homegrown company plans to invest EUR 5.7 million (USD 6.3m) in the project and put up 33,840 solar modules made by Canadian Solar Inc (NASDAQ:CSIQ), the posted document states.
As Disa is eyeing to develop the scheme on agricultural land, the company’s project plan, declaration of public utility and the environmental impact evaluation are all subjected to public consultation.
The second request submitted to the public on Monday concerns a 4.5-MW solar farm development promoted by Narita International Advisors SLU with a projected budget of EUR 2.3 million. This facility is designed to utilise 16,000 Canadian Solar modules.
The third developer seeking public approval is Akasaka International Advisors SLU, which wants to put up a 4.76-MW solar farm. The EUR-2.6-million project is also counting on the Canadian Solar brand of modules, specifically, 17,136 units.
Both Akasaka and Narita are connected to Spanish-Japanese PV-focused developer Univergy International SL, according to the Spanish business registry.
