November 20 (Renewables Now) - Spanish utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE) said today its renewables unit Enel Green Power Espana (EGPE) has connected to the grid a 8-MW wind farm in Spain.
The company invested EUR 9.3 million (USD 10.3m) in the Reformado de Pena Ventosa park. Its four 2-MW wind turbines will produce enough clean power to offset 16,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.
Pena Ventosa is the first of project from a three-plant portfolio to reach commercial operation in Lugo province. The Spanish unit of Enel is currently working on the 12-MW Paradela and 42-MW Serra das Penas wind farms. Together, the three facilities represent more than EUR 72 million in combined investment.
EGPE expects to complete by the end of the year the final 480 MW of the 540 MW of Spanish wind capacity it secured in the May 2017 tenders.
