Spain's Solaer switches on 8-MWp PV park in Toledo
Solaer's Torrijos II photovoltaic solar park
Spanish solar company Grupo Solaer has connected earlier this week an 8-MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) plant to the local grid in Spain's Toledo province.
Named Torrijos ll, the PV park will sell power on a merchant basis. Its estimated production amounts to 15,908 MWh per year, equivalent to the consumption of 4,500 homes.
Comprised of 12,120 PV modules, Torrijos II is expected to generate enough clean power to offset some 7,200 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.
So far this year, the company has put 23 MWp of solar parks into operation. In May, it connected the Torrijos Norte, Torrijos Sur and Escalonilla Oeste facilities, each with a 5-MWp capacity. Solaer also plans to switch on a 50-MWp PV plant, the largest in Puebla de Guzman, in July.
Overall, the company is targeting 300 MW of solar additions this year, with ten parks located in Spain and Portugal.
