January 11 (Renewables Now) - Spanish power utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE), through its renewables unit Enel Green Power Espana (EGPE), has recently commissioned 388 MW of new solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity in Spain’s western region of Extremadura.

In total, the company has switched on eight PV parks, which required a combined investment of more than EUR 260 million (USD 294.3m), the company said on Monday.

The new additions were commissioned in two parts. El Doblon, Puerta Palmas and Veracruz were put into operational last week, with the remaining five -- Apicio, Beturia, Nertobriga, Ardila and Cincinato -- now commencing commercial power generation.

In addition to the above mentioned solar parks, Endesa is working on 15 more projects. It has a total of 1,150 MW under development in Extremadura's Badajoz province.

At present, EGPE manages more than 7,794 MW of renewable energy capacity in Spain.
