4.3 MWp worth of PV to be installed on Spanish greenhouses

The Swiss solar company says it received the contract from an unnamed Swiss energy utility. It adds that the photovoltaic modules will be supplied by Norwegian parent company, ITS Innotech Solar from Narvik.

Construction on the three-part project is scheduled to begin this month, and should be finished by the end of the year. According to ITS Power, it has been awarded a feed-in tariff of around 28 euro cents per kilowatt hour.

Overall, it is expected to generate 6,200 MWh of green energy annually, which should be enough to supply around 2,000 households.

Managing director Robert Kroeni commented: "This plant is set to increase our portfolio of medium to large-scale plants in Spain to a total of more than seven MW. As a full service provider, we will also be responsible for operating the plant on behalf of the utility company."
