The project was initially approved by the National Commission on Financial Markets and Competition (CNMC) in June and by the Ministry of Environmental Affairs in July 2015. Promosolar Juwi 17, S.L.U., a special purpose vehicle that owns the project, has been authorized to build the plant and a substation on a 1,088-hectare site in Mula, a small municipality in the Murcia region, according to a document published in the Spanish Official Journal. Promosolar Juwi 17, S.L.U. will also build a transmission line to connect the plant to the network of national grid operator Red Eléctrica de España.
The project was originally launched in 2012, when Spain had already closed its feed-in tariff scheme for large-scale solar. Several big solar projects, including the Mula array, were announced throughout southern Spain at the time. In the early stages of development, the developers said that the projects would be constructed without government incentives.
Most of the projects, including Ellomay’s 300 MW PV plant Talaván near Cáceres in the southern region of Extremadura, have since been fast-tracked by regional governments. However, none of the developers have announced the the start of construction so far.
