Enel Green Power España has connected a new 3.46 MW wind farm in the town of Mallén and Fréscano, in the province of Zaragoza, to the electricity grid.
The Dehesa de Mallén wind farm has one wind turbine with a capacity of 3.46 MW and will generate around 11.2 GWh per year, which is production equivalent to the amount consumed by 2.841 homes. Its commissioning will avoid approximately 7.400 tonnes of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere annually. Investment in this project amounts to €4.6 million.
Construction of this renewable capacity is part of Enel Green Power’s strategy to fully decarbonize its generation mix by 2050. According to the company’s strategic plan, the next milestone is to achieve 10.2 GW of renewable installed capacity by 2022, up from the 7.4 GW estimated for the end of 2019, with a total investment of 3.8 billion euros.
Enel Green Power currently manages, through EGPE, over 7,455 MW of renewable capacity installed in Spain. Of this sum, 4,711 MW is conventional hydro power and the remaining 2,744 MW are from wind power (2,310 MW), solar power (352 MW), mini-hydro (79 MW) and other renewable energy sources (3 MW).
