Spain overtakes US with world's biggest solar power station; aims to reach 2,500 MW by 2013


The new La Florida solar plant takes Spain's solar output to 432 megawatts (MW), which compares with the US output of 422 MW. The plant is located at Alvarado, Badajoz, in the west of the country. The solar farm covers 550,000 square meters and produces 50 MW of power.

Protermosolar, the association that represents the Spanish solar energy sector, says that within a year another 600 MW will have come on-stream. It projects that by 2013 solar capacity will have reached 2,500 MW.
