Iberdrola doubles its green bet in Andalusia

Spanish power company will launch 1,100 new megawatts in the region

Iberdrola doubles its commitment to clean energy in Andalusia, with the processing of more than 1,100 new renewable megawatts (MW). The company, which has just begun the construction of its first photovoltaic plant in the region, processes photovoltaic projects and a wind farm in five provinces of the autonomous community. In Huelva, Iberdrola has projected photovoltaic plants with a total installed capacity of 420 MW. In this province, the company has started the construction of its first photovoltaic plant in the region, Andévalo (50 MW), which will be operational in 2020. The project is built within the largest wind power complex in Continental Europe, El Andévalo, promoted and managed by Iberdrola since 2010, it will guarantee the supply of green electricity to the four factories of Heineken Spain and their offices. The photovoltaic plant will prevent the emission into the atmosphere of more than 100,000 tons of CO2 per year and will contribute to reviving economic activity and employment. In Seville, the processing extends to a total of 150 photovoltaic MW and, in Granada, the defined projects add 300 MW of installed capacity. Iberdrola's renewable plans in the region are completed with 210 MW photovoltaic in Malaga, as well as a wind farm -Martín de Jara, with 36 MW of power- and 30 MW photovoltaic in the province of Cádiz. The green energy production of these new projects will supply a population equivalent to 600,000 homes; similar for example to that of the city of Malaga.

With these projects – whose construction is estimated for the years 2020 and 2021 – Iberdrola raises its commitment to clean energy in Andalusia and will double its renewable presence in the region, where it is already the first wind developer, with a capacity of 856 MW installed in Huelva (292 MW), Granada (198 MW), Cádiz (167 MW), Malaga (133 MW), Almeria (50 MW) and Seville (16 MW).
