Endesa, through its renewable energy generation subsidiary Enel Green Power España (EGPE), has started construction of the second photovoltaic (PV) plant of approximately 50 MW in the city of Carmona, province of Sevilla, Spain. The construction of this photovoltaic installation, known as “Los Naranjos”, which will be completed by the end of this year, will involve an investment of 28.2 million euro.
The Los Naranjos solar power plant will be composed of 128,520 photovoltaic panels with a peak power of 340W each. For the operation of the facilities, Endesa, through EGPE, will build nine switching stations, a transformer station and an underground electrical network that stretches for 4.5 kilometers.
The plant is to be put into operation at the end of 2020 and, once operational, is expected to produce around 100 GWh per year, thus avoiding the emission of approximately 67,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere each year.
From the end of 2019, EGPE has under construction another photovoltaic installation in Carmona, “Las Corchas”, of 50 MW, in which it will invest 30 million euro. These two solar power plants together represent the largest photovoltaic installation of the company developed so far in Andalusia, with a combined capacity of about 100 MW.
