November 12 (Renewables Now) - Enel Green Power Espana (EGPE) has connected to the grid the 35.99-MW Campoliva I onshore wind farm in the Spanish region of Aragon.
The renewables builder's parent company, Spanish power utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE), said Monday the new wind farm represented an investment of EUR 40 million (USD 44.1m).
Campoliva I is equipped with 11 wind turbines erected in Villamayor de Gallego, Zaragoza province. Endesa said its construction was completed in record time, from November 2018 to July 2019. The wind farm was commissioned on October 22.
Campoliva I will generate approximately 108 GWh per year, or equal to the consumption needs of 33,000 families, and avoid emissions of some 71,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually.
EGPE, Endesa’s renewable energy arm, is currently building around 900 MW of new projects involving wind and solar power. Their combined investment reaches more than EUR 800 million.
Endesa’s target is to hit 8.4 GW of installed renewables capacity in 2021, a task involving around EUR 2 billion, the company said.
