The plant, located near the town of Mazarrón in the Murcia region, was installed over an area of almost 89 acres by local companies Valfortec and Solaer. Meanwhile, Conergy supplied the necessary components, including the over 22,000 photovoltaic modules, and 31 miles of SolarLinea mounting systems.
It is expected to generate more than 8.1 gigawatt hours of energy annually, which should be enough to supply 2,700 households throughout the year.
Commenting on the recent news that Spains government had suspended support for all renewable energy projects, Luis Jiménez Gutierrez, managing director of Conergy Spain said, "Currently, it is only possible to construct and connect projects that were approved before the moratorium, such as the Conergy park near Mazarrón.
"Obviously, a moratorium is never a cause for joy. But according to its own statements, the government is holding firm to its view that there will be some appropriate support measures to smooth the path of Spains photovoltaic sector towards grid parity. We are therefore definitely optimistic and expect the government to implement measures in this area in the near future, which will ensure planning security for the entire industry."
