The local government has already given its approval to the project. While it did not name the company that submitted the proposal, local media has reported that France-based Dhamma Energy is behind it.
The government said as a next step, the officially unidentified company can start the process to obtain environmental and administrative permits. The total amount of investment is expected to be around 270 million. It is hoped the project will attract 500 employees during construction, and 70 during its operational phase.
According to city Mayor Pedro Acedo, Extremadura has a huge potential for the development of PV plants with 3,200 hours of sunshine annually.
