Spanish renewable power retailer and developer Capital Energy has obtained the environmental impact statement for the 8-MW La Encantada solar farm project in the Castile-La Mancha region, central Spain.
The company announced on Friday it will invest EUR 6 million (USD 5.8m) in the photovoltaic (PV) scheme, based in Cuenca province.
Once up and running, La Encantada should be capable of generating 16,000 MWh per year, enough to meet the demand of more than 6,000 local households.
Capital Energy noted that La Encantada is still awaiting the preliminary administrative authorisation and the construction permit.
The group is currently developing five wind and six solar projects in the Castile-La Mancha region which require a total investment of over EUR 600 million. The schemes have a combined capacity of 865 MW, of which 288 MW is wind energy and 577 MW -- solar parks.
