May 25 (Renewables Now) - Enel Green Power Espana, the renewables unit of Spanish power utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE), has started building around 150 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) parks in its home country.

The company said on Monday that the Veracruz, Puerta Palmas and El Doblon projects, each with a capacity of around 50 MW, will involve a combined investment of EUR 96 million (USD 117.3m).

The trio is located between the Spanish towns of Merida and Almendralejo, Extremadura region. The projects will use bifacial PV panels mounted on trackers ordered from Spain's Soltec Power Holdings SA (BME:SOL).

Operations are expected to start in December of 2021.

In addition to these, EGPE is building five other PV parks in Extremadura -- Apicio, Beturia, Nertobriga, Ardila and Cincinato. Together, these projects represent some EUR 170 million in investments and roughly 250 MW of combined capacity.

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