Spanish renewable energy and gas company Audax Renovables SA (BME:ADX) announced today that it has obtained a permit to start operation of 20 MWp of solar farms in Toledo province, Spain.
The capacity is divided between four PV plants -- La Zarzuela I, II, III and IV -- which will soon start feeding electricity into the grid.
The plants have been ready for weeks, but some parts of the permitting process were delayed by relevant institutions, Audax explained.
The company said that its four Las Alberizas solar projects, also totalling 20 MWp, are stuck in a similar situation with the permitting authorities. It expects to get the licence to start operation of the Las Alberizas I, II, III and IV in the next few days.
Permitting woes aside, Audax is moving forward with the next group of solar PV project without difficulties. The construction of the 4.48-MWp Calanas, the 5-MWp Arenales and the 5-MWp El Toconal projects is close to being finalised, with Audax saying it expects to commission the trio during the current financial year.
