Iberdrola continues its investment in Extremadura with 750 MW of new photovoltaic power approved for construction in the province of Cáceres, which will contribute to the economic recovery and demographic challenge in the region.
The Tagus photovoltaic plant (380 MW) will be situated in the municipality of Alcántara and will have over 930,000 panels and 226 inverters on a fixed frame. The company plans for it to be commissioned by the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023.
The Cedillo photovoltaic factory, located between Alcántara and Herrera de Alcántara, will have an installed capacity of 375 MW, with 925,680 panels and 180 fixed-structure inverters. It is scheduled to come into action in 2022.
Iberdrola has put Extremadura at the core of its renewable strategy in Spain, where it will produce more than 2,600 MW of photovoltaic energy by 2023, with an investment of €2 billion.
Iberdrola currently has more than 2,900 MW installed in Extremadura, making it the second autonomous region with the most renewable megawatts installed by the company. With projects scheduled for more than 2,600 MW in the area, Extremadura’s renewable capacity will be doubled to 5,500 MW.
